Blackhawks Prospects Wrap: Red, White, and Boom



While it may not be the Patriotic stirring that one gets during the Olympics or the World Juniors, it’s still pretty great for fans to see their Blackhawks prospects dazzle. It was Oliver Moore again zipping his way down the ice. Gavin Hayes with a beauty of a give and go and then finishing it off. How about Frank Nazar tying the game after a furious rally?

Take your pick Chicago. But is it going to be something if the Summer Showcase is foreshadowing of what will be in the future.

Moore, Nazar Appearing Like the Prospects Version of the Spiderman Meme

Nazar and Moore were on opposite squads but were busy wreaking havoc against their respective opponents. Nazar and US Blue rallied from a 4-1 deficit and it was the University of Michigan center evening it up at four. Hayes netted the goal that pulled the US within one. Both below:

Nazar and Moore, though are almost like carbon copies of one another. Be it the speed, the stick handling, the two-way play or what have you, it’s absolutely mind boggling that Moore was able to slide down as far as he did.


Hayes continues to dazzle as well, be it smart little passes or the moves to finish off a scoring chance. As written about the other day, the Blackhawks prospect pool continues to overflow with the speed and skill general manager Kyle Davidson and director of amateur scouting Mike Doneghey have prioritized since taking over.

In a town that loves it athletes and shakes the building when the National Anthem is sung before every game, imagine how that same fanbase will feel in its national pride should they continue the momentum from a very impressive showcase.
