Dominik Kubalik has been named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for January.

During the month of January, Kubalik scored 14 points (10G, 4A) in 10 games and scored twice as many goals as any other Blackhawk. He was second to only Jonathan Toews' 16 points (5G, 11A) for the overall team lead in points during the month. 

Kubalik's 10 goals matched the franchise rookie record for goals in a calendar month (Alex DeBrincat in November 2017). League-wide, only Alex Ovechkin scored more goals (13) than Kubalik in 2020's opening month, while Nikita Kucherov, Auston Matthews and Evgenii Dadonov matched his goal total at 10.

The forward leads all NHL rookies in goals with 21 so far this season, adding 11 assists as well to sit just five points off the rookie lead in scoring (Cale Makar, 37 points).
