The Chicago Blackhawks traded back into the third round of the 2021 NHL Draft, sending a third-round pick in the 2022 Draft to Carolina for the 91st overall selection.
At 91, the Blackhawks went BIG. Like, real big.
Taige Harding, D
Obviously the Blackhawks see something in Harding that others don’t. He was not ranked by any scouting services. He’s an overage player (born Jan. 3, 2002) and is headed to Providence College next season.
He was born in Irvine, Great Britain and played the last couple seasons at Fort McMurray in the AJHL.
