The Chicago Blackhawks are just a couple of nights away from dropping the puck for the 2020-21 season. 

They'll play the Lightning in Tampa Bay and after a couple of cuts we have an idea of what that roster will likely be. 

Head coach Jeremy Colliton revealed the likely opening day lineup. 

With both Jonathan Toews and Kirby Dach missing in action for an extended period of time, Dylan Strome will start the season as the first line center between Alex DeBrincat and Patrick Kane. 

Last years rookie sensation Dominik Kubalik will player on the third line with Puis Suter and Brandon Pirri. 

On the defensive side of things we find Duncan Keith with Connor Murphy while Adam Boqvist will likely debut the season with Nikita Zadorov. 

Here's a look at the full lineup:
