BUFFALO, N.Y. – After a busy couple weeks of wheeling and dealing, the Blackhawks added nine new players on Day 2 of the 2016 NHL Draft.

The most notable addition is 5’7″ winger, Alex DeBrincat.

DeBrincat scored more than 50 goals in each of the past two seasons for the OHL’s Erie Otters.

The Hawks selected the former Lake Forest Academy standout 39th overall with one of the two picks they received in a deal that sent Andrew Shaw to the Montreal Canadiens.
