Kirby Dach might really be able to step up big for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Chicago Blackhawks are going into their series against the Edmonton Oilers as underdogs. The Oilers aren’t as good as some of the other top teams in the league but they have some of the most dangerous offensive fire-power in the world. That means that the Blackhawks are going to have to try and match it which is going to be difficult. One person who might be a key to that happening is rookie forward Kirby Dach.
Dach was the third overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. He made the team out of camp which was really impressive for a teenager and he had some ebbs and flows during the season. When he makes a big play, you can see the skill that earned him that high draft status. There are also times where he has looked like a rookie.
