2019-20 Preview:

Going into the 2019 Offseason General Manager Stan Bowman needed to make some changes to a Chicago Blackhawks team that missed the playoffs and have been on the decline even before that. As part of the tinkering to the Blackhawks lineup it starts in between the pipes as the Blackhawks signed 2019 Masterton Trophy and William M. Jennings Trophy winner Robin Lehner to a one year deal.

 

Bowman also did some tinkering to the defense as well by trading for Olli Maatta from the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Calvin de Haan from the Carolina Hurricanes with the hopes that they will be able to help the Blackhawks cut down on the goals against which was the second most behind the Ottawa Senators last season. The Blackhawks also re-acquired forward Andrew Shaw from the Montreal Canadiens to give them a net presence on offense. The Blackhawks also signed free agent forward Ryan Carpenter from Vegas, and traded for forward Alexander Nylander from Buffalo to help bolster their offense.
