New On-Ice Leadership For The Blackhawks

It’s a new day for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Over the past decade-plus, Blackhawks fans have become used to seeing the C on the chest of Jonathan Toews. And, now that he’s back, we’ll thankfully get to see that on the ice again.

However, we’ve all enjoyed watching Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook with the A on their chests. Sadly, neither of them will be on the ice when the 2021-22 season begins in Chicago.

So who will serve as the leadership group for the Blackhawks moving forward?

It appears Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat will replace Keith and Seabrook with the A on their chests.

    Thought Murphy might be in picture for an “A” this season too.

    I like it. I would have been fine with Murphy instead of DCat or home/away “A”‘s for the two of them but DCat has risen to a position of leadership by his play on the ice so I’m happy for him getting rewarded.

    And Kane was a no brainer. He’s come a long way from his frat-house days.

    Any combination of Kane, DCat and Murphy would have been fine.

    Finally the Hawks will have an audience to watch the new players ! Those new players will be enthused with firstly the Jim Cornelison Anthem and then the song Chelsea Dagger ! I’m sure Fluery will be impressed in that new Shirt ! That A on DCat will Look Good ! For all the fans let’s hope they have turned the page to a new beginning ! I will drive in from Hamilton Ontario to watch and listen for the roar ! Pops 4

    Watched a few video clips from practice today and they’re practicing special teams with Toews/Kane/DCat/S.Jones and Johnson of the first unit. They were moving the puck and themselves around really well – course they were playing against the Hawks PK unit, so …

    Am I misremembering but wasn’t Sharp also an assistant captain?

    No complaints about DCat with an A or of course not with Kane – if there is a third Murphy or Seth Jones would be good choices

    As someone earlier said, Kane is a no brainier and Dcat has become a leader.

    not sure how you could ever top having 2 and 7 as your A’s but these choices seem solid if not obvious

    With as much as Seth Jones and Murphy are going to be on the ice I would have had one of them as Assistants.
