'I'm Pissed and Frustrated' Blackhawks Rookie Voices Displeasure With Losing And His Point Drought

Reichel's Struggles in Chicago Leads to Frustration

In the young NHL season, the Chicago Blackhawks have played nine games, and one glaring statistic stands out: Lukas Reichel, the team's forward, has yet to tally a point.

While fans may express concern, no one is more frustrated than Reichel himself. Of course his mood would be quite different if they were on a winning note, but the Blackhawks recently received a pounding from the Arizona Coyotes, losing 8-1 and giving Lukas Reichel's season total in the plus/minus department a staggering negative (-) 9.

"Of course I'm pissed," Reichel said. "I'm frustrated. I want to score. It's more fun if you score, of course, that's why I'm a forward. But I try to stay positive and keep working."



A Change in the Air



To ignite Reichel's offensive game, the Blackhawks made a significant move during practice. They shifted Reichel to the left wing, with Andreas Athanasiou at center and Taylor Raddysh on the right wing.

This change in position may not be permanent, but it's a step in a new direction. Blackhawks' head coach Luke Richardson indicated that they might consider moving him back depending on Taylor Hall's return.

"We might even move him back," Said Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson said. "It's just on maybe Taylor [Hall] coming back or so. We just thought we'd try him there and see what it looked like with AA playing in the middle again.


For now, the trial on the left wing is an experiment worth watching.
