Blackhawks prospects continue setting the bar high


Blackhawks prospects have spent the last week showing their respective leagues how the game is played.

Last Tuesday, 2008 first-round pick Kyle Beach was named the American Hockey League's player of the week after posting three goals and five points in the IceHog's two previous matchups.

On Monday the Chicago products kept the achievements coming as Mark McNeill was named the Western Hockey League's player of the week for his performance with the Prince Albert Raiders. The 19-year old forward racked up seven points, scoring two goals and five assists in the team's last three games, leading the team to a 2-1-0 road record.

McNeill currently leads the Raiders in scoring and ranks 23rd among WHL players with 24 points in 21 games. He was selected 18th overall by the Blackhawks in the 2011 NHL Draft.
