Blackhawks Roster For Second Preseason Game

Here is the lineup for the Blackhawks second preseason game.

There will be two NHL veterans on the ice for the Hawks – Andrew Desjardins and Michal Rozsival – and most of the forwards skated in the first preseason game against Pittsburgh. Alex DeBrincat, Pierre-Cedric Labrie, Sam Carrick, Kyle Baun and Graham Knott will make their preseason debuts at forward. Rozsival, Erik Gustafsson, Carl Dahlstrom and Robin Norell will make their preseason debut on the blue line.

Jonathan Toews, Corey Crawford and Marian Hossa will rejoin the team now that the World Cup of Hockey is over.

Rockford opens camp this weekend, so more cuts can be expected soon.

    Debrincat and Motte at center?

    They’ve both played center before, now is as good a time to experiment as any. If you like watching the young players, this is the game to watch.

    Wouldn’t be a surprise to see Pittsburgh get another shut-out with that offensive lineup.

    the preseason is not about wins and losses, but the future development of the young players. we will be leaning hard on them in the next couple of years.

    I know they both have. But Kero projects more as a center than Motte.

    Hopefully De____Cat doesn’t get 4th line minutes! Looking forward to see his speed and offensive skills.

    Kero projects more as a center than Motte, what’s the difference. The glaring hole is at LW, they are rotating guys through LW to see who stands out if anyone. That’s what preseason hockey is for.

    I’d andrew desijardins making a good case for bottom 6 centre roll. Strong in faceoffs and ways responsible in his defensive game.

    Hummm… 2 games and still no offense……strange to see all those kids without a goal . playing good on Defense ..and learning the system …next cut in 1-2 days …somebody saw the game yesterday ?
    Who was the best players on the ice ?

    Only saw less than two periods but it was Forsling-looks like they finally may have another young d-man-
    Hino might be able to play at his size in the NHL and I saw a couple of nice shifts from Labrie. (he works his butt off) Motte will have more of a chance than Schmaltz in the short term. Just my opinion.

    I thought forsling and motte played pretty good. Hinostroza flashy at times and tvr was struggling.

  • October 1, 2016 at 9:48 am

    Thx Ian….Forsling and Motte are always on their Mission lately …Motte has that kind of warrior style i think and we need that ..Hope we can get 1-2 kids who can do the Job …
