Kirby Dach Says Farewell To Chicago

Chicago Blackhawks

On Friday night, now Montreal Canadien center (or centre as they say north of the border) Kirby Dach tweeted an adios to Chicago.

Dach, of course, was the third overall pick by the Blackhawks in the 2019 NHL Draft. He moved in with the Seabrooks and had a progressively improving rookie season before injuries, Jeremy Colliton and an organization in flux contributed to a disappointing end to his three-year tenure in Chicago.

He never became consistent enough — or good at all for that matter — at the dot to sustain his spot as a center in the lineup and interim head coach Derek King started using him more on the wing in his third and final season in Chicago.

Currently a restricted free agent, Dach now gets a chance to turn the page in Montreal.
