The Chicago Blackhawks will get their training camp underway later this month, and on Thursday the team announced the names of the players that will take part in the process of constructing their 2016-17 roster.
Along with the familiar faces like Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith, and the Hawks also will have several new faces on the ice as they prepare for the new year.
Free agent acquisitions Brian Campbell and Jordin Tootoo are both listed on the team’s preliminary roster for training camp, and youngsters like Vincent Hinostroza, Nick Schmaltz, and Tyler Motte will be looking to nab a roster spot during practices.
