Lukas Reichel Receives a Big Change Before the Season

Published September 21, 2023 at 10:18

There is a much more positive vibe surrounding the Chicago Blackhawks at the moment than there was at the end of of the 2023-2024 season. There is a lot of hype surrounding the newly drafted Connor Bedard, which is a sign that things are going well for the team.

In terms of news for a potential first-round draft pick in 2020, there's great news about Lukas Reichel, who didn't have a big breakout last season, but proved what he could do despite not having a full breakout season.

12 of the player's 15 points were scored in the last 19 games of the season 2022-2023.

Reichel was recently promoted from the American Hockey League's Rockford to the big club and has been a staple in the lineup ever since. Now, he has been assigned a new assignment that will give him more defensive responsibilities than he did as a winger, which is another new challenge.

It was stated by Kyle Davidson, the winger-turned-center of the Blackhawks, that he has spent the summer working on both his offensive and defensive game in preparation for his transition to a Center role.

As training camp kicks off on Thursday, we'll be able to get a better understanding of what Luke Richardson's projected line-up will look like.

In the meantime, Reichel is expected to be deployed in a center role, but we are not able to confirm which line he will be assigned to.
