The 2020 draft class led the way for the Blackhawks prospects over the last two weeks and the Rockford IceHogs were led to their first victory of the year by a pair of three-point performances from two members of the 2017 draft class. 

Take a look at some of the top performers: 

1. Landon Slaggert 

Blackhawks' 2020 third-round selection Landon Slaggert posted seven points (2G, 5A) in four games for Notre Dame over the last two weekends, posting a 2-1-1 record against Wisconsin and Michigan State. 

Slaggert started his four-game point streak with a pair of assists in a 4-2 loss to Wisconsin on Feb. 19 before matching his stat line the next night in a 5-5 tie against the Badgers. He then posted a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win over Michigan State on Friday night and a power-play tally in another 2-0 win over the Spartans on Saturday afternoon. 

In all, the freshman forward has factored in seven of Notre Dame's 11 goals over the past two weeks. His seven goals on the year are tied for second on the team.

2. Lukas Reichel

Chicago's top pick in last year's draft saw his recent point streak come to an end at five games, but posted two goals and four assists in five games for Eisbaren Berlin over the last two weeks -- all but one on the power play. 

Reichel netted a power-play goal in a 6-1 win over Krefield on Feb. 17 and two nights later added another power-play goal and a power-play assist in a 6-1 victory over Kolner. He was held off the scoresheet in a 3-2 shootout loss to Wolfsburg on Feb. 23, but was one of Eisbaren's three shooters in the shootout. He rounded out the two-week stretch with a power-play assist on Feb. 26 in a 5-3 loss to Bremerhaven and two assists, one with the man advantage, in a 3-2 overtime loss to Wolfsberg on Monday.

The 19-year-old now has 17 points (6G, 11A) in his last 20 games for Berlin, who sits atop the North Division standings with a 12-4-4 record on the season.  

3. Evan Barratt

Barratt led the charge as the Rockford IceHogs picked up their first win of the season on Feb. 23, with his first professional goal and a pair of assists in a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Monsters. 

The 2017 third-round pick tied the game 1-1 near the end of the second period before added a secondary assist on Andrei Altybarmakyan's 2-2 equalizer with 3:23 left to play in the third. Barratt then setup 2020 pick Isaak Phillips for the game-winner with 1:33 to play to steal the comeback victory in Rockford. 

Tim Soderlund, taken a round after Barratt in 2017, notched assists on all three IceHogs goals. Phillips also added an assist as the trio combined for eight points in the win. 

HIGHLIGHTS: Rockford 3, Cleveland 2
