Hawks checking line producing offensively | 02/14/2013 10:15 AM
NewsThe Chicago Blackhawks' checking line has been holding their own offensively this season.
ImpactThat's not surprising given that Viktor Stalberg, Andrew Shaw, and Bryan Bickell all have offensive upside. Those three have combined for seven goals and 18 points, but they're doing more than just providing some secondary scoring. "Good defense always leads to good offense," Shaw said. "We're just supporting the puck and battling for each other, and good chances have come from that. We have to compete in our own end and get pucks out. They can't score if they're not in our end. We just try to work on that aspect, and go to the net and get some dirty goals." That line's success has played a significant role in Chicago's hot 10-0-3 start.

For that reason, we recommend keeping an eye on him.

His instincts with the puck and around the puck are really good. We should see some growth in his game." Shaw has yet to get a point this season and with only one minor and an even plus/minus rating, we would pass on him in fantasy pools.
