In a bid to spark a change and potentially rejuvenate Lukas Reichel's game, the Chicago Blackhawks are introducing a major shift to their power-play units during practice.

The new power-play alignments are as follows:

Power-Play Unit 1 (PP1):

Connor Bedard
Taylor Hall
Lukas Reichel (bumper)
Corey Perry (net front)
Seth Jones


Power-Play Unit 2 (PP2):

Philipp Kurashev
Tyler T. Johnson
Taylor Raddysh (bumper)
Nick Foligno (net front)
Kevin Korchinski

This adjustment marks a significant change for Reichel, who has faced challenges in the current season compared to his previous performance. Fans have been suggesting Reichel on the top PP unit for a while now, and it finally shows:


The coaching decision to integrate him into a key role on power-play unit 1 reflects the team's strategic effort to revitalize his contributions and provide a new dynamic to the man-advantage situations.


As the Blackhawks implement these changes, fans and analysts will be closely watching how the power-play units evolve and whether Reichel's inclusion in a prominent role can be a catalyst for positive developments in his game.
