The bit more comforting news that emerged 5-2 loss Blackhawks' for the Blues was also the most obvious - it was just a game.

Little has gone right for the Hawks in a game captain Jonathan Toews Jersey said: "Our energy, our speed and work ethic was not there."

The biggest question mark for the Hawks has been added as a new and young players performed.

Forwards a mixture

There were four rookies on offense playing on two basic lines for the Hawks. There was Tyler Motte-Marcus Kruger-Ryan Hartman on one line and Vincent Hinostroza-Nick Schmaltz-Jordin Tootoo to another.

Young forwards could be key for Chicago Blackhawks

There are a lot of nice pieces, starting with NHL MVP Patrick Kane, star center Jonathan Toews and Calder Trophy winner Artemi Panarin.

How they fit together is the big question for coach Joel Quenneville Chicago.

The Blackhawks changed Teuvo Andrew Shaw and Andrew Ladd Teräväinen and lost in free agency during the summer, leaving three large holes. Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann also left in free agency, and Marian Hossa, long one of the most consistent strikers in Chicago, comes from a bad year.

The result is an unstable situation of the Blackhawks Jersey' Quenneville four lines that might need some time to resolve.

Blackhawks' Niklas Hjalmarsson suspended for high hit, will miss season opener

Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey

When the Chicago Blackhawks open their season against the St. Louis Blues on October 12, they will be missing one of their best defenders.
On Monday, the Department of the NHL Player Safety announced that Niklas Hjalmarsson was suspended for the rest of the preseason and regular season game for its "high, illegal move" Blues before Ty Rattie in the game pre- Saturday night season between the rivals of the central section. Chicago has only two contests remaining pre-season, so it comes down to a three-game ban for once.
The ministry Hjalmarsson was guilty of charging after launching its success on Rattie. Blackhawks defenseman received a match penalty for an illegal check to the head, which came with just over a minute remaining in regulation in Saturday's game.
Rattie was shaken, but not injured. In addition, Hjalmarsson has been suspended once before in his career. These two facts were among the considerations the length of the suspension.
