The Chicago Blackhawks come into 2017 looking to again compete for the Stanley Cup, which they have hoisted 3 of the last 7 seasons. They will surely be hungry this year after a surprising first round playoff exit last season despite clinching the Western Conference. Leading the way will be Patrick Kane, 2015-16 NHL MVP and leading scorer, who tied for second in the league last season with 89 points. Kane is a sure fire Hall of Famer, but it doesn't stop there for the Hawks. Captain Jonathan Toews, Defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, and goalie Corey Crawford will look to propel the Blackhawks back into the playoffs.
The Hawks made some notable moves in the offseason to bolster their roster. The team was reunited with Brandon Saad, who was vital in the Blackhawk's Stanley Cup runs in 2013 and 2015, by trading dynamic winger Artemi Panarin for Saad and Anton Forsberg, a young goalie prospect. Saad will be a welcomed addition to the roster, as he achieved a plus/minus of +23 last season. GM Stan Bowman also re-signed a fan favorite, sniper Patrick Sharp.
In 2017, the Blackhawks will have all eyes on them as they host the Pittsburgh Penguins to kick off their 2017-18 season. The Hawks will also host the Predators, Red Wings, Golden Knights, Sharks, and Blues, and more this season.
