The hype surrounding Alex DeBrincat is real, and he's not making it easy for Blackhawks fans to temper their expectations of Chicago's top prospect.

After a quiet prospect camp in July, the 5-foot-6, 165-pound winger shined in game action during the Traverse City prospect tournament, scoring a goal in each of the team's four tilts and helping the Blackhawks win their first ever title in the event.

Most importantly, DeBrincat saved his best for last when all the marbles were on the line by finding the back of the net twice in Tuesday's championship game, including the overtime winner to secure a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
