Can Blackhawks land Connor Bedard?; Top 5 draft options

CHICAGO (BVM) – When Kyle Davidson took over the Chicago Blackhawks’ general manager role in the middle of 2021-22 season, the team had landed itself in a difficult position. With aging veterans and the lack of young talent, picking a lane became more and more important as the team headed towards the offseason. 

Behind Davidson’s plan to rebuild things from the ground up, the expectations for the 2022-23 season are unfortunately starting to look a lot like many expected. With a complete overhaul of the team’s roster and a changed philosophy that aimed towards future success, the Blackhawks now find themselves at the very bottom of the league’s standings. 

As the team expects to make key decisions during this season on franchise greats Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, Davidson and his staff still have to keep an eye out when it comes to their future options.
