The Chicago Blackhawks' young talent pool has claimed the top spot in the 2023 rankings by EP Rinkside. Among them is forward Frank Nazar, who rose to the number one spot in the team's prospect rankings, as noted by Ben Pope.

Despite facing challenges from hip surgery, Nazar has made a remarkable comeback after missing much of the 2022-2023 season. He's shown resilience, notching 2 goals and 5 assists in limited appearances.

Nazar's strong performance continued into the 2023-2024 season, with 10 goals and 23 assists in 26 games, totaling 33 points, showcasing a quick recovery post-surgery.

The Hawks' 13th overall pick from 2022 has enjoyed a sophomore year at Michigan as encouraging as his freshman year was discouraging.

He rediscovered his old self during the fall and has improved even further this winter, tallying 16 points in his last nine games to get to 33 points in 26 games overall. He'll likely sign and make his NHL debut after the college season ends.

Expectations are high as Nazar is set to sign with the Blackhawks at season's end, likely joining the team for training camp. His arrival promises to bring excitement and talent to the roster as they pursue their goals in the seasons ahead.
