Chicago Blackhawks 2013 NHL Draft Picks: Grades, Results and Analysis
Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Less than one week after their shocking Stanley Cup title, the Chicago Blackhawks entered the 2013 NHL Draft hoping to add yet another cornerstone to the franchise.

The selection of Ryan Hartman with the 30th overall pick has the potential to fulfill that wish. Hartman will bring a well-rounded playing style to the 'Hawks second or third line a few years down the road.

Chicago GM Stan Bowman then pulled off a series of intriguing trades.

Cup-winning goal scorer Dave Bolland was dealt to the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 51st (second round) and 117th (fourth round) picks and 2014 fourth-rounder. Shortly after, depth forward Michael Frolik was shipped to the Winnipeg Jets for the 74th (third round) and 134th (fifth round) picks. Later, the 'Hawks landed the 111th (fourth round) pick and a 2014 fifth-rounder while sending the 117th (fourth round) and 151st (fifth round) picks to the San Jose Sharks.

Bowman also added talented new prospects to his franchise with No. 121, 181 and 211 choices in the fourth, sixth and seventh rounds.

Detailed prospect analyses and selection grades for every 'Hawks pick fall on the coming slides.
