    Hey Tab can you give me your scouting report on Ian Mitchell Also, who do you compare him to on the current Hawks or anyone else in the NHL

    Hossahawk – I’ve compared him you a young Duncan Keith before. Smart, plays every inch of the ice well, leads. Everything you want from a top pair defenseman. Maybe not quite the skater 2 was in his prime but he’ll be special if the Blackhawks can figure out a way to get him on the ice and have coaches who help him develop at the NHL level. I don’t think he’ll spend much/any time in Rockford.

    Like Mitch that much as well. It was Beau that I wasnt sure about being a 2nd pair or maybe top pair like BoQ and Mitch.

    Good to see for tompkins also. I think he’s working his way to a contract with a NHL team soon.
