The Chicago Blackhawks have a lot on the line heading into the 2019-20 season. After missing the playoffs for 2 straight seasons, the Blackhawks are hungry for a spot in the season that really matters, the Stanley Cup Playoffs. However, some players also have other things on their minds.
Eight of the players projected to start the season with the Blackhawks are playing on expiring contracts. That is over a third of the roster, so there will be players not returning next season.
Heading into the new season, these players aren’t just playing to make the playoffs.
