The 2020 draft class has led the way for the Blackhawks prospects over the last two weeks, including a pair of picks playing important roles in playoff action for their clubs. 

Take a look at some of the top performers across the organization:

1. Lukas Reichel

The No. 17 overall pick captured the DEL championship with Eisbaren Berlin on Friday in a 2-1 win over Wolfsberg to take the final in a series comeback, 2-1. Berlin capped off a run as one of the best teams in the top German league all season long with the 18 year old finishing sixth in combined regular season and playoff scoring. 

Reichel added an empty-net tally in game two of the final series to seal a 4-1 win for Berlin to pull level after dropping the opening game of the series. He finished with two goals and three assists in nine postseason games for Eisbaren after scoring 28 points (10G, 18A) in 38 regular-season games. 

2. Louis Crevier

The defenseman notched a pair of assists on Monday night as Chicoutimi punched their ticket to the QMJHL semifinals in a 5-1 win over the Quebec Remparts to take the best-of-three series, 2-1. The Saguenéens now await their opponent in the next round as the first team to advance. 

Crevier also scored in Chicoutimi's clinching game of the opening round on April 26 to seal a 7-3 win over Sherbrooke in Game 3. He has three points in six playoff games after finding the scoresheet 14 times (6G, 8A) in 26 games during the regular season. 

3. Chad Yetman

Chicago's sixth-round selection in last year's draft returned to AHL action for the first time in nearly a month on May 3 with a goal and an assist in regulation of a 3-2 shootout victory for Rockford over the Grand Rapids Griffins. He followed it up with another assist in his next outing, a 6-1 loss to the Iowa Wild on May 7. 

The winger has two goals and four assists now in 13 AHL games, plus a goal and an assist in nine skates with the ECHL's Indy Fuel this year. 

News and Notes
  • Evan Barratt matched Yetman's scoreline in May 3rd's shootout win over Grand Rapids, scoring the opening goal and adding the primary assist on Yetman's tally. Andrei Altybarmakian assisted on both goals in the win. 
  • Isaak Phillips added a pair of assists and Josiah Slavin snapped a six-game point drought with a third-period assist in Rockford's comeback bid against Chicago on Monday, falling 6-5.
