The Chicago Blackhawks were handed the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft as a result of staying put in the Draft Lottery. There are a lot of interesting players to consider with the pick. There are a lot of forwards and a few defensemen that will be available with that pick. They might even trade up or down to get someone depending on how things go for their big board which would certainly make things interesting. They could also consider the big-time goalie that is available.
The Chicago Blackhawks could also consider going in a different direction in the draft.
It was a norm for a while to not consider goalies in the first round unless they are magnificent. Well, there is some good to that logic because you always want the players who are most likely to help your franchise move forward. You also can’t win in the NHL without good goaltending so it is nice to see teams get their guy in the draft.
