Blackhawks Select Ryan Hartman With The 30th Pick

Bruce Bennett

The Blackhawks select Northbrook native Ryan Hartman with their 1st round pick.

Ryan Hartman can be compared to an Andrew Shaw type of player. He is a bit undersized at just 5'11 and 185lbs, but he plays big. He does have more a scoring touch than Shaw has. He can play both the wing and is a decent center as well. He will not back down from any challenge and can be a pest on the ice. He has a two way player that can shut down the oppositions best lines and score on them too. Scouts say his hockey IQ is through the roof. He has ability to produce, but in a secondary role. His skating ability could use a little bit of work and at times he loses composure and takes bad penalties, as well. He is willing to do the dirty work in front of the net and along the boards. Some scouts project him to be a second line center. He does possess good speed and acceleration and sees the ice very will. His creativity with the puck and ability to make smart passes go well with his above average shot. Scouts have said that Hartman is one of the more safer picks of the 1st round.
