With NHL fantasy drafts among us, it's time to take a look at some predictions for the Chicago Blackhawks this upcoming season. What the Blackhawks give you each year is consistent production, but they usually aren't worthy of a first round pick. They have players on their roster who are capable of leading the league in scoring, but the Blackhawks play a more balanced style of hockey sharing the puck with each other.
Here are our predictions for the 2013-2014 season:
Forward, Patrick Kane: 38 G, 48 A, 86 points
