Blackhawks Prospect Rob Flick Having Impressive Postseason

Rob Flick was selected with the last pick of the fourth round in the 2010 NHL Draft by the Blackhawks, adding another center to the organization’s overall depth at the position. A 6-2, 210-pound 19-year-old, he was viewed as a project that needed at least one more year to continue his development.

And he’s done nothing but impress.

Flick spent his third (and final) season with Mississauga of the OHL, and had his best offensive season by far. He scored 27 goals and added 30 assists in 60 games, almost doubling his previous career highs in goals, assists and point.

He followed his best regular season with what is becoming a storybook postseason. He has three points in his last three games, bring his totals to eight goals and eight assists in 20 playoff contests. Mississauga will play for the OHL championship on Friday night.

Now 20, Flick could join recently signed David Gilbert and improving Brandon Pirri in Rockford, giving the IceHogs impressive, young depth at center this coming fall.

    I’ve seen Flick play and this guy may be just we need–a very physical player who also has offensive talent combined with a real desire to improve. Probably Rockford next year but given the way the Hawks were ran off the ice against Vancouver don’t be surprised if he makes the big time sooner rather than later.

    I had taken in 5 games at the Hershey Center at Mississauga while visiting the GTA. Flick was not the same player at the end of the year as he was at the first. The improvement from start to finish was nothing less than spectacular. This guy hits hard and has a pro shot. I did take in the complete Memorial Cup which is a step and a half faster than your normal Major Jr. A hockey game. Flick definitely fulfilled his obligation’s by playing that Level and a half higher.
