Blackhawks Daily: A Lesson From Jack Hughes; Vegas Tonight



There’s been some hand wringing about Connor Bedard and it’s got to stop. Need more evidence? Just watch what’s going on in New Jersey.

Once upon a time, the chant when “Lose for Hughes” and it was cheered loudly by the New Jersey fans as they skidded to another poor year in 2019. They end up winning the draft lottery and grab him–only to see him absolutely stumble in his rookie campaign.

Look at him go now. New Jersey Hockey Now has a huge writeup wondering if the 2019 first overall pick is indeed the best US born player in the league right now.

Maybe. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Penguins are trying to figure just what the heck they’re doing after they blanked the Colorado Avalanche last night. One minute people are wondering if they’re even a playoff team. The next they’re giant slayers.

The Blackhawks have Vegas tonight in Sin City and they’re looking to snap a three-game skid. Great practice aside, the early season excitement is dampening a bit. Tonight serves as a chance for them to bring some momentum back.
