2019 Fantasy Outlook
When the Blackhawks selected Dach with the third overall pick in this year's draft, it was a bit of a surprise, as many pundits had Chicago taking defenseman Bowen Byram, who ultimately went to the Avalanche fourth overall. However, the Blackhawks' will remain in win-now mode as long as Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are still in their primes, and Dach appears to be the more NHL-ready player out of the two. General manager Stan Bowman has already publicly stated that Dach will get every opportunity to make the big club's roster out of training camp, and it appears as though he'll have a great chance to do so, and could step into a third-line role immediately in 2019-20. The 18-year-old pivot has great size at 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds, which should allow him to adjust to the physical nature of the NHL far faster than most prospects his age. Dach is a must-own player in dynasty settings, but if he's able to secure a spot on the Blackhawks' roster this season, he'll be worth a late-round draft pick in yearly leagues, as well.

Concussion
September 20, 2019
Dach (concussion) skated on his own Friday.
ANALYSIS
Friday marked the first time Dach has hit the ice since being diagnosed with a concussion last Friday. The third overall pick from the 2019 draft will need to return to practice with his teammates before being cleared for game action, so he'll have to wait for Wednesday's matchup with Washington for his next chance to make his preseason debut. At this point all signs point to Dach returning to the WHL for the 2019-20 campaign.
