One thought on “Blackhawks 2015 Draft Class Updates

  1. Looking forward to watching some WJC games coming up in a couple weeks. Besides Bondra for Slovakia, I think Forsling and Olafsson has been invited to Sweden’s WJC camp. Not sure if there are other Hawks draft picks who will be trying out for WJC teams.
