United Center – Chicago, IL


Newly acquired Chicago Blackhawks forward Anthony Duclair will make his Blackhawks debut on Friday night as the team takes on the Winnipeg Jets. 

Duclair came over Wednesday after having previously requested a trade from the Arizona Coyotes. The 22 year old will be skating with David Kampf and Alex DeBrincat on the third line. 

"Really excited. Obviously I'm stoked to be here. It's been a crazy few hours, couple days, but it's an honor for me to be here and it's a great opportunity for myself and just excited to get going." Duclair said.

On the other side of the puck the Hawks find one of the league's best in the Central Division leading Winnipeg Jets who have won three in a row and are 6-0-1 since the holiday break. 

Jets forward Blake Wheeler has five goals and six assists while currently enjoying a seven game point streak. 

With Corey Crawford still sidelined, Jeff Glass gets the start once again and has accumulated a 2-1-1 record along with a 3.51 goals against average and .908 save percentage in four starts since being called up. Connor Hellebuyck gets the starts for the Jets after stopping 31 of 32 shots against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.
