Chicago Blackhawks prospect Dennis Gilbert looks up to fellow defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, he told Leah Pascarella of in a Q&A segment.

"He plays a really gritty style of play. He works really hard, blocks a lot of shots, does whatever it takes to win. That's kind of what I try to do for my team now at Notre Dame," Gilbert said.
