Waterloo hockey fans are getting excited for the 2020/21 season to get underway. Last week the team announced its upcoming schedule along with information about four new players joining the team via a dispersal draft. Now some former Black Hawks are getting ready to hear their name called in this year's NHL draft.

Brandon Montour, Brock Boeser, Mikey Anderson, Mark Friedman, Rem Pitlick, Cal Petersen, along with another guy you may have heard of, Joe Pavelski are just a handful of former Black Hawks who made it the NHL. Now another group of 2019/20 Black Hawks are hoping for their phone to ring over the next couple of days.
