The Blackhawks will send third-overall draft pick Kirby Dach to the tournament, which kicks off on Sept. 6 and runs through Sept. 10. Dach will be joined by 2018 first round picks Adam Boqvist and Nicolas Beaudin, and will also send potential NHL roster contenders like MacKenzie Entwistle and Dennis Gilbert to the tournament.
Here is the team’s roster:
Forwards: Luke Bignell, Liam Coughlin, Kirby Dach, Shawn Element, MacKenzie Entwistle, Brandon Hagel, Mikael Hakkarainen, Reese Johnson, Philipp Kurashev, Riley McKay, Dylan McLaughlin, Issac Nurse, Tim Soderlund, Michal Teply
Defensemen: Nicolas Beaudin, Adam Boqvist, Dennis Gilbert, Chad Krys, Cole Moberg, Jack Ramsey, Jake Ryczek
Goaltenders: Nico Daws, Alexis Gravel, Chase Marchand
The tournament will feature prospects from the Blackhawks as well as the Blue Jackets, Stars, Wild, Rangers, Blues, Maple Leafs, and the host Detroit Red Wings. Teams will play in round-robin style groups for the first round, then play in a championship game on Sept. 10.
