Blackhawks Make Major Goaltending Decision: Top Prospect Sent to Rockford

In a significant move, the Chicago Blackhawks have announced that their top goaltending prospect, Jaxson Stauber, will be heading to Rockford. This decision narrows down the goaltending competition, making it clear that Petr Mrazek and Viktor Soderblom will be the two NHL goaltenders for the Blackhawks this season.

Stauber, highly regarded as the future between the pipes in Chicago, will continue his development in the AHL with the Rockford IceHogs. While this move is necessary for his growth, it's bittersweet for Blackhawks fans who had high hopes for him.

The decision to go with Mrazek and Soderblom suggests that the Blackhawks are prioritizing experience, despite Mrazek's injury history, this is concerning for the Blackhawks but also means Stauber will be up in no time due to Mrazek's injury history.


Blackhawks fans are undoubtedly sad to see their top goaltending prospect leave, but they can now focus on what promises to be an exciting season with Mrazek and Soderblom guarding the net.


The countdown to the season opener begins as the team finalizes its roster.
