One of the newest Blackhawks signings has wasted no time making an impact at the next level.

Take a look at some of the top prospect performers across the organization over the last two weeks of action:  

1. Josiah Slavin

The college-to-pro jump is going well for the Colorado College product. After notching a goal in his first pro game on March 28, Slavin has kept it rolling with two goals and two assists in his three tilts since while finding the scoresheet in all four pro games. 

He scored the game-tying goal in the second period of an eventual 4-2 loss to Chicago on April 3, registered two assists in a 4-3 win over Chicago three nights later and, most recently, picked up the lone tally while shorthanded in a 4-1 loss to Iowa on Tuesday night. Of his three pro tallies in total, one has come at even strength, one on the power play and one while down a man. 

Tweet from @goicehogs: Slavin is 🔥🔥🔥 in his first four pro games. Now has three goals in two assists in his first four games.

2. Louis Crevier

Chicago's lone player in QMJHL action this season, the defenseman posted two goals and an assist over his last two games, bringing his season total to 14 points (6G, 8A) in 26 games. 

Crevier scored twice in Chicoutimi's 4-3 win over Victoriaville on March 31 and then added an assist on the lone Saguenéens goal two nights later in a 7-1 loss to Shawinigan. 

The seventh-round pick from October's draft has played in all but three games this season as Chicoutimi leads the QMJHL's East Division with a 17-7-3-2 record. 

3. Brandon Pirri

The veteran had an impactful lone game for the IceHogs over the last two weeks, scoring a hat trick in Rockford's 4-3 win over Chicago on April 7. Pirri's three goals took Rockford from a 1-0 first-period lead to a 4-1 lead heading into the second intermission with Slavin's two assists in the same game coming on Pirri's first two tallies. 

He posted a two-goal performance in his first AHL game of the season on March 3 and has five goals in three games this year for Rockford. His trio of goals moved him into second place all-time in IceHogs goal scoring with 73 total over 241 games. 

Tweet from @goicehogs: 🧢 👒 🎩 Congrats on the hat trick, Brandon!

News and Notes:
  • Wyatt Kaiser and Minnesota Duluth couldn't match their overtime heroics last Thursday night, falling to eventual national champion UMass in the semifinals of the Frozen Four, 3-2. 
  • MacKenzie Entwistle posted a goal and an assist in his last three skates with Rockford, scoring the first goal in the April 7 win over Chicago. 
  • Lukas Reichel registered a goal and an assist in his last five games for Eisbaren Berlin. The 2020 first-round pick added a power-play assist on the lone goal in a 4-1 loss to Munich on April 4 and scored in a 6-2 win over Schenninger on April 7.
