CHICAGO (BVM) – The Chicago Blackhawks selected Jonathan Toews with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft. The following year, the team landed the No. 1 pick and took Patrick Kane. The duo was able to grow together and ultimately lead the franchise to three Stanley Cups.
Chicago lucked into landing two elite forwards, but it is usually not that easy.
Connor Bedard has managed to accumulate 33 points in 39 games despite not having the best linemates to work with. The Blackhawks were gifted with yet another generational talent and getting him help will be their top priority this offseason.
These are five possible options for the Blackhawks who can be paired with Bedard.
