The Blackhawks season might be over already, but some of their most promising prospects are still skating and competing. With the Ontario Hockey League Playoffs in full swing, one guy gets the chance to show what he's made of.
Alex DeBrincat had a spectacular regular season, scoring 127 points in 63 games. With his team safely in the Playoffs, he had 12 games already to show off his skills.
On a pace of more than 2 points per game, DeBrincat is ridiculously overpowering the league. Chosen 39th overall in the 2016 draft, many thought he was too small to perform. At 5'7'', 170lbs he's definitely not the biggest guy around. However, he shows insane playmaking skills that will certainly earn in a ticket in the big show soon enough. Guys like Martin St-Louis and David Desharnais are staple players in the league's history with a similar size. Skills sometimes trump size!
The Erie Otters lead their third round series 1-0 against the Owen Sound Attack and will play again tonight.
