    Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Adam Boqvist made his second career NHL appearance on Sunday, and he made an immediate impact as he netted his first career goal in the contest against the Anaheim Ducks.

    Boqvist, the Blackhawks’ first round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, was out with the team’s power play unit in the first period when he got his golden opportunity. Off a behind-the-net feed from Alex Nylander, Boqvist pinched in from the point and uncorked a gorgeous wrist shot that beat Ryan Miller on his glove side:

    Fellow first round pick Kirby Dach skated over to the net and scooped the puck out for Boqvist as a souvenir. Nylander, also a first round pick, was credited with the assist on the goal, and Jonathan Toews, a first round pick in 2006, was also on the ice when Boqvist scored.

    Boqvist was called up last week after scoring his first professional goal as a member of the Rockford IceHogs. That goal also came on the power play, and both plays illustrate the type of offensive impact the Blackhawks are hoping that Boqvist will have on the squad.
