For the second straight year, the guys at Fantasy Hockey Scouts asked to contribute to their Blogger Breakdown and we gladly complied. Here’s one of the questions they asked us:
Q1) Blackhawks Breakout of the Year?
Viktor Stalberg. The centerpiece of the Kris Versteeg trade, Stalberg will be given every chance to play top 6 minutes for the Hawks, at least in the early going. The former Hobey Baker finalist scored 12 goals in 39 games on a god-awful Toronto team and the hope is he can add to that with better linemates.
You can find the rest of the questions here.
–Nick Boynton received a one-game suspension (it must be served in the regular season) for his theatrics on Wednesday night. The hilarious part is Boynton was previously suspended in the ’05-06 season for pulling the same stunt. No word on whether he got his face pounded in that fight also.
–Jeremy Morin and Igor Makarov practiced with the veterans today. They also got to dress in the main locker room in their own stalls. Use that information for what you will.
