Blackhawks Boast 5 Of Hockey's Top 100 Prospects

Hockey Prospectus has ranked five Chicago Blackhawks players in their Top 100 Prospects list, according to CSN Chicago.

2012 first-round draft selection Teuvo Teravainen leads the way for Chicago, coming in at No. 11. Teravainen, a 18-year-old forward from Finland, scored 11 goals and added seven assists in 40 games for Jokerit of the professional Finnish hockey league, SM-liiga.

Brandon Saad, who many believe is the top young talent for Chicago, is the second-highest rated talent for the Blackhawks, coming in at No. 30. The 19-year-old Saad played in two postseason games for Chicago last season.

Center Brandon Pirri also played briefly for the Chicago Blackhawks last season. Pirri comes in at No. 50.

Mark McNeill and Jeremy Morin round out the top five for Chicago, coming in at No. 63 and No. 90, respectively. None of the top prospects for Chicago are over the age of 21.
