The Chicago Blackhawks know how good Patrick Kane has been for USA hockey. Alex DeBrincat could be next if he plays well leading into 2022.
The Independence Day of the United States, or otherwise known as the 4th of July, is upon us tomorrow. As hockey fans, it makes us want to think about the state of where the US is at. With rising stars like Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel, Charlie McAvoy, and Jack Hughes coming along, it is easy to be excited about where the game is going for the country. Chicago Blackhawks forward, Alex DeBrincat, is going to be a big part of that and it is very exciting.
The Chicago Blackhawks took DeBrincat in the second round (39th overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft. Well, he turned out to have fallen significantly lower than he should have as he is one of the better players in the draft. He is from Farmington Hills, Michigan and he is looking to become one of the more significant American born players.
