The Chicago Blackhawks have been struggling as of late - dropping 4 out of their last 6 contests.

Joel Quenneville decided to shift the lines a bit to remedy the slump - and it's allowed an exciting player to get a huge opportunity on the top line.

Alex DeBrincat, 19, has 4 points so far, and could feasibly add to that point total in short order playing with Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad.

The two are among the team's leaders in points, only behind Patrick Kane. This lineup configuration has the potential to bring a better balance to the offensive lines - and give the perrenial OHL star and 2nd round pick the chance to let his offensive skills shine.

The Blackhawks take on the Nashville Predators Friday night.
