Blackhawks to introduce teen dream Dach vs. Caps

The Chicago Blackhawks likely will introduce a new face when they host the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.

That would be 18-year-old Kirby Dach, whom the Blackhawks selected No. 3 overall in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. Chicago promoted Dach from a conditioning assignment in the AHL following their most recent contest.

Expectations are high for the young prospect, a physical two-way forward who spent the past three seasons in Canada's Western Hockey League. The Blackhawks' last draft pick taken at No. 3 overall was Jonathan Toews, who went on to win three Stanley Cup championships with the franchise in 2010, 2013 and 2015.
