First, let’s take a look back at last seasons opening day roster.


Wow, was that defense bad or what?

Now let’s take a look at the players from the 2015-16 opening day roster that also made the 2016-17 opening day roster.


Only six returning forwards and four returning defensemen from last seasons opening day roster.

Finally, the cap hit for every player on the Chicago Blackhawks game one roster.
