An 18-year-old center whom Chicago selected at No. 3 overall in June, Dach was third on the Saskatoon Blades with 73 points -- 25 goals and 48 assists -- in 62 regular-season games during the 2018-'19 season. He's a Canada native from St. Albert, Alberta.

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman hasn't committed to whether Dach will join the team during this upcoming 2019-'20 season.

"He's going to have a chance to make our team," Bowman said in June.
