2020 NHL Draft: Blackhawks Picks Rounds 4-7

The Chicago Blackhawks made three selections from the fourth through the sixth round in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Round 4 – Pick #110
Michal Krutil
Defenseman

6-3, 203
Shoots: Right
DOB: 06/03/2002

Ranked #218 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Ranked #133 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #27 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters)

From EliteProspects.com:
“Krutil was the Czech’s most notable defensemen and among the best players on the ice. He’s effective at moving the puck with a man advantage and displays some creative stickhandling. He can stay calm under pressure and finds solutions even when he had little time on his hands. He doesn’t hesitate to use his body to protect the puck.”

Round 5 – #141
Isaak Phillips
Defenseman

6-3, 195
Shoots: Left
DOB: 09/28/2001

Ranked #126 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Ranked #148 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #114 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (NA Skaters)

Round 6 – #172
Chad Yetman
Right Wing

5-11, 176
Shoots: Right
DOB: 02/18/2000

The Blackhawks traded back into the seventh round, sending a seventh round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft to Montreal.

Round 7 – #188
Louis Crevier
Defenseman

6-8, 216
Shoots: Right
DOB: 05/04/2001

Ranked #150 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Ranked #186 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #118 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (NA Skaters)

From EliteProspects:
“At 6’8, Crevier can stand a few feet from you and still poke check the puck and prevent plays with ease. He’s an “unnatural” presence on the ice; players think they’ve escaped his grip, but they often haven’t moved far and quickly enough. He’s a decent skater for his size. He recognizes assignments and anticipates passes reasonably well in the defensive zone.”

  1. Phillips is an interesting pick. He’s older (19) but had major growth spurt a few years ago going from 5’11 to 6’3. Strong development last year as he got used to his bigger body.

  2. Nice story about Crevier … Bergevin accept to give the 2021 7 round for the 188 choice in 2020 …now the journalists are upset because Bergevin Didn’t pick any French Canadian players …soo funny …the story is that the scout from Quebec (Alexandre Rouleau ) for the Hawks said that the Hawks where interested in Crevier from the start but had other players available that where more interesting at 5 and 6 round..
    Then they realize that Crevier was still available . Rouleau said that Crevier had a extraordinary progression this year. It’s a long shoot for sure but who knows.
