Coming into this season, Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Collition had a tough task in front of him.
Last offseason, the New York Islanders had a tough cap dilemma to solve. They had some critical free agents, namely star center Mathew Barzal, and Defensemen Devon Toews, and Ryan Pulock.
With the Stars having to postpone their first 3 games of the season with 17 players on the Covid list, it opened up opportunities for other players to make the roster. Young center Ty Dellandrea took advantage of a massive opportunity and the Stars have been reaping the rewards.
