Chicago Blackhawks roster 2016-17: A constantly updating depth chart

The Chicago Blackhawks look for their fourth Stanley Cup of the decade during the 2016-17 season. Between now and June, the team will see its ups and downs as it works to finish this season as successfully as 2010, 2013 and 2015.

One of the challenges will be a much, much different lineup than two years ago. The Hawks have turned over much of their roster due to salary cap maneuvering and are breaking in several rookies this fall. There’s still optimism the group can jell over the course of the regular season, but they’re no sure thing.

Like we did over the summer as the team was reloading its roster, we’ll be constantly updating this page throughout the season with the latest depth chart and salary cap information. The latter is courtesy of Cap Friendly.
