The Chicago Blackhawks and their fans had a very special night on Thursday. The lead-up to it was hyped up by the fact that their top prospect, Lukas Reichel, was making his NHL debut. He has been dominating with the Rockford Ice Hogs and now he is going to get a look in the best league in the world at 19 years old.
He came out for warmups and did a few solo laps as most rookies do when they make their NHL debut. It was really cool to see as the organization really hopes that he is going to become someone that they can build around. So far so good.
