Frank Nazar 2022 NHL Draft Blackhawks

Frank Nazar Will Make His Michigan Debut Tonight!

Chicago Blackhawks

You know what I really needed on a Friday afternoon at the end of a really long week? Good news.

Thank you, University of Michigan, for providing said big, GREAT news.

Double-take? Yeah, me too. I spy with my little eye a Blackhawks logo at center on the third line tonight.

That’s right people. Frank Nazar has been activated.

It’s go time!

Nazar was the 13th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft by the Blackhawks, the first-round pick they received in the trade that sent Kirby Dach to Montreal. He’s got wheels for DAYS, but a lower-body injury that required some medical attention has kept him off the ice all season.

Until now.
