2018 NHL draft results: Blackhawks select USHL forward Josiah Slavin with No. 193 pick

Chicago’s last pick has an older brother in the NHL already.

With their final pick of the 2018 NHL Draft, the Chicago Blackhawks selected forward Josiah Slavin from the USHL in the seventh round (193rd overall).

Slavin is the younger brother of Jacob Slavin, a defensemen for the Carolina Hurricanes. Josiah Slavin has been playing with the Lincoln Stars of the USHL. He appeared in 60 games during the 2017-18 season, scoring 23 goals with 19 assists. Slavin’s future will involve a return to his home state, already committed to play at Colorado College where former Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Mike Haviland is the head coach.

But Slavin will head back to the USHL next season, where he’ll be the captain for 2018-19.
