It's Blackhawks Insider Wednesday!
On the latest episode of the Chicago Blackhawks official podcast, Senior Writer Chris Kuc and Blackhawks TV's Adam Burish dive into the Robin Lehner signing, discuss what's left to do in building the 2019-20 roster and take an in-depth preview at next week's Development Camp. Then, Blackhawks.com's Carter Baum sits down with Senior Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman to discuss the offseason and more.
"It's the first step. If he's going to play on our team next year, he has to be signed to a contract," Bowman said of signing first-round pick Kirby Dach to a three-year deal on Monday. "Like we said all along, we're going to get him signed, get him in camp and see where he looks, how he looks and what the team looks like."
He'll get his first chance starting Monday, July 15, as Dach and 35 other Blackhawks prospects open 2019 Development Camp at Fifth Third Arena.
"You only get so many impressions in this league," Burish said. "Any time you get the chance to make a big impression on the staff and on the coaching staff and the management, as a young 18, 19, 20 year old, you have to be on when you show up."
