Meet Marko Dano, Brad Richards’ potential replacement

SHARE Meet Marko Dano, Brad Richards’ potential replacement

When the Blackhawks traded Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets, they received three players including 20-year-old center Marko Dano.

Dano played in 35 games last season and recored 21 points (eight goals and 13 assists).

But now that the Blackhawks let veteran center Brad Richards sign with the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago has a need for an aggressive, young center.

Dano’s scouting report:

Owns a great shot, elusive skating ability and a lot of creativity on offense. Is versatile enough to play either center or wing, and he’s especially good when shooting from his off-wing (right).
