How the Brandon Saad trade will affect Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane

Maybe it was correlation or maybe it was coincidence, but Jonathan Toews' production the last two seasons during 5-on-5 play was below his lofty standards without Brandon Saad playing on his left side. Outside of a monthlong period last season in which he played with Nick Schmaltz and Richard Panik...

Saad is coming off back-to-back 53-point seasons with the Blue Jackets, where he continued to be a beast during 5-on-5 play. The 24-year-old winger scored 24...

Blackhawks couldn’t have won three Stanley Cups without Marian Hossa

Guys like Marian Hossa want none of the attention and deserve all of it. As understated as he was underrated, Hossa quietly became the Blackhawks’ easiest superstar to overlook since he signed as a free-aget in 2009. Captain Jonathan Toews typically acted as spokesman, Patrick Kane played the role...

Morning Bag Skate: Blackhawks leave Marcus Kruger, Trevor van Riemsdyk unprotected for NHL expansion draft

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the hockey world.

Here are the players safe from the Golden Knights’ grasp for now.

NHL Draft: Ranking every Blackhawks 1st-round pick of the past 20 years

From Patrick Kane to Kyle Beach, we rank every Hawks first-rounder of the past two decades. There’s no better way for an NHL franchise to set itself up for success than to nail the draft. Get the No. 1 pick in the right season and you’ll end up with a generational superstar. Screw up a couple of those picks, and you can set your team back for years. GM Stan Bowman has had the good fortune of never needing to be in that position. His predecessor, Dale Tallon, was the one tabbed to get big wins with the Blackhawks’ high draft picks in the mid-2000s. And boy did he, with Jonathan Toews...
