Coach Luke Richardson and Kyle Davidson are great at finding bargain contracts and bringing in players like Colin Blackwell.

The Blackhawks found redemption last night by defeating the Arizona Coyotes 7-4 in the United Center.

Blackwell scored his first career hat trick against the Yotes, who shined that night on the ice. He was one of many Blackhawks who had multi-point games that night.


Jones, Bedard, and Donato did well as well.

Another player who was considered a depth piece in the league rose due to Richardson's coaching and Blackwell's competitive nature.



As valid as Blackwell's case is to return, could Kyle Davidson move him during the off-season?

Over his career, Blackwell has served as a depth player for many teams, including the New York Rangers, Nashville Predators, and Seattle Kraken.

It appears he has found a home in Chicago.



Since Blackwell has stated explicitly that he wants to live in Chicago, it might not be a bad idea to reward him for his efforts.



The current cap hit on Blackwell's contract is $1.2 Million, and it expires at the end of the season.

As a result of his return from injury, Blackwell has tallied eight goals and three assists for 11 points in the 2023-2024 NHL season.
