“It’s thrilling and exciting for me, it’s something dreamed about my whole life,” said Dach about staying with the team. “I came into camp wanting to make this team and pushing to make it. To finally get that recognition from Jeremy [Colliton] and the management group is thrilling.”
In six games with the Blackhawks this season, the 18-year-old has a goal and an assist while playing 11:50 TOI. Once Dach plays more than nine games in the NHL, he will burn a year on his NHL contract.
