Blackhawks Prospects Set To Impact Frozen Four

2015 Frozen Four

The Frozen Four will play out in two national semifinal games tomorrow night in Boston, and a number of Blackhawks prospects will play a prominent role.

At 4:00 PM CT, Providence will face Omaha and Hawks prospect defenseman Luc Snuggerud. As a freshman, Snuggerud posted two goals and 14 assists in 38 games this season. He was a fifth round pick (141st overall) by the Blackhawks in 2014.

In the nightcap (scheduled for 7:30 PM CT), #3 Boston University will host a #2 North Dakota team led by three Hawks prospects.

Freshman Nick Schmaltz, the Blackhawks first round pick (20th overall) in 2014, finished the season fourth on the team with 26 points (five goals, 21 assists) in 37 games.  Sophomore forward Luke Johnson, a fifth round pick (134th overall) in 2013, posted 10 goals and 13 assists in 41 games. And senior defenseman Nick Mattson, a sixth round pick (180th overall) in 2010, registered four goals and 16 assists in 32 games.

Both games are on ESPN2.

    Anxious to watch Mattson in these games. They have a decision to make on him.

    very true Hof.

    Omaha’s Luc Snuggerud has really progressed nicely and playing very important minutes. Just a freshman but he’s been impressive.

    I always like what North Dakota’s Luke Johnson brings. Very hard on the puck, forechecks well and always seems to be in the correct place on the ice.
