The Tank for Bedard
The Blackhawks started the season with a mix of ups and downs, struggling to find their rhythm early on. However, as the season progressed, the team developed chemistry and began to showcase their true potential. Under the guidance of coach Luke Richardson, they focused on an aggressive style of play, emphasizing speed, creativity, and a relentless forecheck.
