With the third overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, the Chicago Blackhawks selected center Kirby Dach.

NHL Central Scouting's third-ranked North American skater combines a 6'4' frame with offensive firepower. 

Dach recorded 73 points (25G, 48A) for the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL this season and the Alberta native has represented Canada at several youth tournaments. 

The 18-year-old Dach finished second on Canada in scoring at the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge and helped lead his country to gold at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.
