The Chicago Blackhawks did not have the best season in the world in 2019-20, but injuries did play a role in that.

Zack Smith, Brent Seabrook, Andrew Shaw, Drake Caggiula, and Adam Boqvist all spent some time out of the lineup due to injuries this past season. Chicago definitely was not at their best this past season due to injuries. How big of a role did that play for the Blackhawks?

When contemplating the Blackhawks moves in the 2019 offseason you can not help but think about players like Zack Smith, Andrew Shaw, Calvin de Haan, and Olli Maatta.
