On October 31st, Head Coach Jeremy Colliton and the Chicago Blackhawks announced that they will be recalling their top defensive prospect, Adam Boqvist.
A day after being called up, Boqvist practiced with the Blackhawks as they prepared for their game against Los Angeles.
Since they called up Boqvist during their current 4 game road trip, Blackhawks fans were expecting to see him as soon as possible.
As of November 2nd, 2019, Coach Jeremy Colliton announced today that he will be in the lineup vs the Kings.
Calling up Boqvist could potentially boost their offensive potential from the blue-line. Blackhawks defensemen have only scored a combined 1 goal this season.
Although Coach Colliton hasn’t committed to Boqvist staying with the team past the current 4 game road trip, Blackhawks fans should still be excited to see the future of the team at the NHL level.
Coach Jeremy Colliton said on the future of Boqvist “We haven’t thought that far ahead, it’s more like let’s see where he’s at.”
As a Blackhawks fan, I hope he stays the rest of the 2019-20 season, but that’s for Jeremy Colliton and the team to decide.
Expected Lines vs Kings
Expected Power-Play Units
Players to watch tonight vs Kings
- Adam Boqvist, I mean it’s his NHL debut, so you gotta watch him and expect him to play in a big role tonight and help this team get back on track.
- Jonathan Toews, He’s been really struggling to start the season. In 11 games played so far, he has only 2 points(1G, 1A). I think tonight is the night he has a “breakout” game.
The future is bright for the Blackhawks, and us Blackhawks fans should be nothing but excited. So let’s buckle up Hawks fans! It’s going to be a fun ride.
