Blackhawks vs Wild – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread
The beginning is the end in some cases, and tonight will offer us a unique juxtaposition of those realities as Jonathan Toews plays in what might be the penultimate home game of his Blackhawks career for the Blackhawks while highly-touted defense prospect Brock Faber makes his NHL debut just two days after losing in the NCAA championship game with the University of Minnesota. Chicago sent Lukas Reichel and Alex Vlasic back to Rockford on Monday morning, so it’s Buddy Robinson time folks!

🥅 Filip Gustavsson
- The Blackhawks continue to be without Taylor Raddysh, Cole Guttman, Colin Blackwell and Philipp Kurashev, whose seasons are over.
- Minnesota didn’t travel a few guys but that’s because they’re staying healthy for the playoffs.
What to Watch For
- Jonathan Toews.
- Faber making his NHL debut tonight is pretty cool. He’s from Minnesota and went to the University of Minnesota but got drafted by the LA Kings. The Wild brought him home in the trade that sent Kevin Fiala to LA.
