The Chicago Blackhawks played their Home Away From Home preseason game on Sunday night against the Minnesota Wild at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee Wisconsin. It is always nice to see the National Hockey League do what it can to grow the game.

The home of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks didn’t save the Hawks well as they were defeated 3-0. It was a packed house but Chicago wasn’t able to prevail over their Central Division rivals.

There were some good plays made by Chicago players throughout the game but their power play failed them (The Wild scored two shorthanded goals) and they couldn’t score a single goal all game long. These are the types of things that are going to happen in the regular season as well.

Following the game, there have been some big roster moves made by the Blackhawks as everyone will now truly get ready for the regular season. For one, Arvid Soderblom is being sent to the AHL now and will begin planning to start with the Rockford Ice Hogs.

Also, Kevin Korchinski and Samuel Savoie are headed back to their junior teams. That means they will play out the entire season there and be back with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2023-24 with legit hopes of making the team. By camp of next year, they should be signed to two-way deals.

The Chicago Blackhawks are very smart with their current young prospects.

This isn’t the most fun news but it is the best news. Soderblom will get some NHL time this year but it is much smarter for the team to use Petr Mrazek and Alex Stalock as their goaltenders as this is clearly a tank year.

Soderblom might be the best goalie in the organization and it is best for him to keep his confidence up on a pretty good Rockford Ice Hogs team.

As for the two juniors, they will go down and dominate with their teams and their development will continue in much happier situations. The Haws would be terrible this year with them or without them so there is no point to put them through that and risk hurting their development.

All three of these guys are extremely important to the organization’s future. They all were also very impressive during training camp and the preseason up to this point.

All three of them can be a part of the future core if they just keep grinding it out now while the team figures things out around them. With the potential for the World Juniors and other big games on their current non-NHL teams, it will be fun to watch their development continue.
