Chicago Blackhawks: How the Lockout Will Affect the 'Hawks

The Blackhawks were eliminated from the Playoffs last year by the Phoenix Coyotes in six games.

As of 12:00 am on September 15th the Chicago Blackhawks, along with the rest of the NHL, have been officially locked out.

Until the NHL and NHLPA can come to terms with a new CBA no hockey will be played.

The effect of a possible shortened or cancelled 2012-2013 season would devastate fans, players and all those involved in the NHL.

After winning the Stanley Cup in 2010, the lockout will negatively effect the Blackhawks because the once championship team is now fading. 

But, just like every other NHL team the Blackhawks’ prospects will get another year to develop.

The Blackhawks have assigned 26 players to the AHL in hopes of helping their development. 

The AHL will feature more talent because the lockout has forced organizations to send players down.
