Drafted: 6th round (178th overall) in 2014

Observations: 

 

March 2018- Sikura has signed an entry level deal with the Blackhawks and will report directly to Chicago with the expectation he will suit up for his first NHL game on Thursday against Winnipeg. A Hobey Baker finalist for the second year in a row, Sikura has made the cut down to the top ten vying for the award. The Blackhawks season is officially in tryout mode so look for Sikura to see ample minutes as soon as he hits the lineup. Tony Carr


December 2017- Sikura has been selected to represent Team Canada at the Spengler Cup held in Davos, Switzerland. He has chipped in with an assist through two games so far as Canada heads into the semi-final. Tony Carr

 

December 2017- After a great summer camp, where he was lauded as the best player on the ice, Sikura has translated that into another hot start for Northeastern University. Averaging well over a point per game, the senior is also an assistant captain for the number 10 ranked (USCHO) Huskies. Expect a stint in the AHL once his college career is done. Tony Carr

 

February 2017- Sikura has been the definition of hot lately, with 18 points in his last 10 games, including three games with three points and four games with two points. His strong season has been recognized as Sikura has been nominated for the 2017 Hobey Baker Memorial Award, the holy grail of college hockey individual awards. Tony Carr

 

January 2017- Sikura is a skilled forward who can play both center and wing. His on ice talent is above average, with good vision and mobility and a willingness to involve teammates with his unselfish play. Sikura will need to add some bulk to his frame to have a legitimate chance at making the Blackhawks roster.~ Tony Carr

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Highly skilled two-way forward with top-six potential.
