No longer do they have to double-shift Patrick Kane, or lean on Jonathan Toews to take all the faceoffs so the team can win. Sure, the veterans still have their place, and
The Chicago Blackhawks haven’t seen a rookie as dynamic as Alex DeBrincat since Artemi Panarin won the Calder Trophy in the 2015-16 season. With 12 goals and 11 assists in 33 games, DeBrincat is a contender for the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year. Playing alongside stars such as Patrick Kane helps his game,
