The Chicago Blackhawks face off tonight for their first road game of the 2016-2017 NHL regular season versus the Nashville Predators.

Niklas Hjalmarsson will be replacing Trevor van Riemsdyk as the first paring along side Duncan Keith. Hjalmarsson is known for his abilities on the penalty kill and he is a star defenseman who will help even out the depth of the blue line.

Watch tonight as the Blackhawks face the Predators at the Bridgestone Arena at 8:00 p.m. (ET).
