BLOG: Sikura Ready to Step In if Called | #FifthThirdBetter

Third-year forward looking to build off strong showing in training camp

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

As the Blackhawks open Game 1 against the Oilers on Saturday, Dylan Sikura in all likelihood won't be in the lineup. But he's waiting, and ready, should his number be called in the coming weeks. 

With a short three-week camp to get ready for playoff hockey, the main forward group in practices has largely stayed at the 12 skaters expected to make up head coach Jeremy Colliton's opening afternoon lines, but Sikura is perhaps the strongest candidate at No. 13.

BLOG: Entwistle Takes Big Strides in Rookie Year | #FifthThirdBetter

The 6-foot-3 forward named Rockford's most improved during 2019-20 season

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

For MacKenzie Entwistle, the hard work is paying off in his adjustment to the pro game. 

The 6-foot-3 forward was named Rockford's Most Improved Player during the 2019-20 campaign, finishing fourth in scoring with 26 points (11G, 15A) in 56 games and second among rookies behind Brandon Hagel. Entwistle's strong season came after a slow start with just one assist in his first five contests and finding the scoresheet in only four of his first 12 games.

BLOG: Regula Making Jump from Juniors to NHL Playoffs | #FifthThirdBetter

Acquired in an early-season trade, Alec Regula getting his first taste of Blackhawks organization in playoff atmosphere

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

It can be daunting entering your first NHL training camp as a rookie in the Fall. Sure, in most cases you've had either a prospect camp or two to get your feet wet, perhaps a trip to Traverse City and the annual rookie tournament to jumpstart your game before the veterans come in, but nothing can get you ready for the real thing.

Alec Regula, though, had none of that experience to fall back on the past few weeks.

Forward turned corner in rookie year before injury derailed momentum late

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

Among the 31-man roster that made the trip to Edmonton for the Blackhawks on Sunday, Philipp Kurashev's inclusion might've flown under the radar. But the Blackhawks know it won't be that way for much longer.

PROSPECTS: Mitchell Hopes to Lead Blue Line into Next Generation

Highly-touted blueliner says defensive prospect pool could resemble that of late 2000s

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

Ian Mitchell might've just signed his entry-level contract with the Blackhawks last week, but he's about as well-versed in the last decade-plus of Chicago hockey as any diehard fan. It's even more impressive when you consider the defenseman hails from the heart of Oil Country in St. Albert, Alberta. 

"I think just growing up I was a big fan of hockey," the 21-year-old said on Wednesday. "Them becoming a good team at that time, you just paid more attention in the playoffs when they were winning series. They were an exciting team to watch, so you wanted to tune in when they were playing."
