The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League as we have to discuss on pretty much a daily basis. The reason we have to discuss this is that it will heavily impact everything about their future.

Speaking of their future, the World Junior Championships are going on right now. The teams that the Blackhawks have their eyes on the most change every year but this year it is Canada. They have four Blackhawks prospects playing for them.

For the second straight game, Canada absolutely dominated their opponent. This time, they beat Austria by a final score of 11-0. It was a dominant performance from pretty much everyone as they seem to be all the way back following that one tough loss to the Czech in the opener.

In the last game against Germany, Colton Dach and Kevin Korchinski were the two Blackhawks’ prospects that found their way onto the scoresheet. In this game, neither of them found it.

However, neither Nolan Allan nor Ethan del Mastro had a point in the last game but they each had one in this game. del Mastro had an assist and Allan had a goal to help contribute to Canada’s dominance. This was a flawless game for them all against a much weaker opponent.

The Chicago Blackhawks have to love what they are seeing from Team Canada.

Lots of Blackhawks fans have their eyes on Adam Fantilli as he will be the second overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. He shot one through traffic that ended up in the back of the net. He also added an assist on the night for a two-point performance.

Connor Bedard, however, is a different story. After a seven-point night a day earlier, he followed it up with a six-point night this time. He had two goals and four assists to help lead Canada to this crazy big win over Austria. He will be the number one pick in the draft, a spot ahead of Fantilli.

This tournament has been a huge success so far for Blackhawks fans. Their guys are contributing and the two players that the team has their eye on at the top of the draft are doing their thing as well.

Canada’s next game will come on Saturday against Sweden who is very good as well. However, now that Canada is in a groove, it is hard to see anyone else beating them. This is one of the most impressive teams we’ve seen at the World Juniors in a while. It will be interesting to see how it ends.
