Chicago Blackhawks fans won’t have to wait long to see newly-acquired prospect MacKenzie Entwistle play.
Entwistle, who was part of Chicago’s seven-player trade with the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday, will play at the Blackhawks’ prospect camp next week at MB Ice Arena, reports Mark Lazerus of The Chicago Sun-Times.
The sessions will be 1-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, followed by a 9:30 a.m. scrimmage Friday. The roster for the camp includes 42 players, including 32 Chicago draft picks and all eight selections from last month’s draft.
Entwistle, who turns 19 on Saturday, is a big-bodied right-handed shot at 6-foot-3 and 174 pounds. Arizona selected him No. 69 overall in the 2017 NHL draft.
Tom Hunter of SB Nation’s Mile High Hockey offers some insight into Entwistle.
MacKenzie Entwistle is a strong skating, power forward with a little offensive upside. He fell to the 3rd round (69th overall) in 2017 but was considered a potential late 1st/early 2nd round pick until he came down with Mono in the middle of his draft season.— Tom Hunter (@PuckDontLie) July 12, 2018
After the draft, he scored 38 points (13 goals, 25 assists) in 49 regular-season games for the Hamilton Bulldogs in the Ontario Hockey League. He added 10 goals in 17 playoff games as the Bulldogs won the OHL championship.
