That’s good news it’s always good exposure for players to play in these situations
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
Hope they show well.
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.
