Blackhawks Prospect Drew Commesso Headed To The Olympics

Even though the NHL isn’t sending players to the Olympics, that doesn’t mean the tournament has been called off completely.

On Thursday afternoon, USA Hockey announced the new-look roster that will represent the country in the Games. And one Blackhawks prospects will be wearing the red, white and blue.

Goaltender Drew Commesso, who was slated to be the No.1 goalie for the USA at the World Juniors until COVID shut that tournament down, will be on the Olympic roster. He was supposed to be on the USA roster for the WJC last year as well, but a COVID outbreak on his college roster cost him the chance to represent the United States last year, too.

Here’s hoping things go well and he’s able to help the US win a medal in the Winter Olympics this year.

    Good experience for him, hope all goes good for them over there. Don’t know where he’ll fit in the pecking order among the 3 goalies, usually in a tournament like this where every game likely important, coaches pick a no. 1 and let them play unless they under perform. Be good if he gets in a game or 2.

    I do not see what is so great about this guy? He ranks in about 30th in both save% and GA%. There are at least 4 yank goalies that are far better/top 10 rankings. Starting with McKay MSU{Min. State) from are you ready Downers Grove the other 3 are from Michigan and play for MSU {Mich. State}, Noter Dame, and MTU.
    This USA team is loaded with BU and BC players and those teams have not been very good the past few years.
