Blackhawks seek offensive firepower to support Bedard. Will Marchessault, Toffoli, or others join the rebuild?

The Chicago Blackhawks are entering a new era with Connor Bedard as their cornerstone. GM Kyle Davidson knows that means prioritizing surrounding Bedard with the best talent available to maximize the superstar’s potential.

That’s why Blackhawks insider Scott Powers recently sparked a conversation about potential free-agent forwards who could make a big difference on Bedard’s line.

Blackhawks Target Offensive Talent to Complement Bedard

Powers suggests some intriguing names include Vegas Golden Knights’ Jonathan Marchessault, Carolina Hurricanes’ Teuvo Teravainen, Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tyler Bertuzzi, Boston Bruins’ Jake DeBrusk, and Winnipeg Jets’ Tyler Toffoli. Each player brings a unique skill set and veteran scoring ability.

The Blackhawks are armed with $38.2 million in cap space to work with. This is more than enough to target one or even two of these players. With many of them likely seeking shorter-term contracts, this fits perfectly within Chicago’s rebuild timeline.

The allure of playing alongside Bedard is a significant draw, but a big question remains: will these established players commit to a rebuild? The potential to play with a generational talent might outweigh the uncertainty for some.
