The 19-year-old Dach will turn 20 next week and fractured his wrist last week while being the team captain for Team Canada. He’s coming off a 2019-20 season with the Blackhawks in which he tallied 23 points with 8 goals and 15 assists in 64 total games.
Dach has developed into a future first liner already in just one season with the Blackhawks, after the organization took him No. 3 overall in the 2019 NHL Draft.
