What They're Saying: Kirby Dach

Meet the newest member of the Blackhawks organization

by Austin Siegel /

The Blackhawks made Kirby Dach the third overall selection in the 2019 NHL Draft. Here's what scouts have been saying about the newest member of the Blackhawks organization:

"When you look at Dach's frame, his high-end hands, his fantastic vision, his ability to play heavy minutes and the fact he skates quite well for a big man, all the components are there for him to become an impact NHL player." - Corey Pronman, The Athletic

"I think the 200-foot versatility offered by Saskatoon's Kirby Dach will win out. His ability to slow the game down, vision and play making ability will allow him to start down the lineup and gradually move into a more central roll." - Ryan Wagman, Yahoo Sports 

"Dach is a big, versatile forward who has high-end playmaking skills. He isn't necessarily explosive, but his hockey-sense is high end, and he can pick teams apart in the offensive zone." - Chris Peters, ESPN 

"His ability to make the right play with the puck will make him a coveted commodity." - The Hockey News
