The Blackhawks surprised hockey fans and analysts around the world when they were holding onto a playoff spot about midway through the season, and who could blame them? The team had said goodbye to their two-time Stanley Cup Champion in Corey Crawford during the offseason. Stalwarts Jonathan Toews and Brent Seabrook as well as last year’s first round pick Kirby Dach, each were dealing with long-term injuries. Coach Jeremy Colliton was able to rally the troops and keep the team in the playoff hunt up until the second to last week of the season. Coach Colliton joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to share his thoughts on the season that was. He talked about how impressed he was with all the young players on the roster, Alex DeBrincat’s bounce-back season, and Patrick Kane’s leadership.
