The Chicago Blackhawks are in a very tough new Central Division.
The Chicago Blackhawks and National Hockey League are going to finally get their seasons underway. Training Camp all of a sudden looms and the regular season will begin on January 13th. They are going to play in a 56 game season against a brand new Central Division. The COVID-19 restrictions are going to make the divisions have everyone close geographically. The hope is that these divisions only last for one season but it is going to be a tough challenge for the Blackhawks.
This will be a division that consists of the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Nashville Predators, and Tampa Bay Lightning. They get to keep the Nashville Predators as a division rival and they gain the Detroit Red Wings back but they lose the St. Louis Blues who will join the Pacific.
