By the Numbers: Kirby Dach


Minutes after selecting Juraj Slafkovsky first overall in the 2022 NHL Draft, Kent Hughes continued his busy work night by orchestrating a three-club trade, sending the defenseman Alexander Romanov and the 98th pick in 2022 to the New York Islanders in exchange for the 13th pick at this year’s amateur auction, before trading that same selection, as well as the 66th overall pick this year, to Chicago in exchange for Kirby Dach . Here are some highlights, in numbers, of his NHL career so far.

3 – Dach was picked third overall by the Blackhawks in the 2019 draft, right after Jack Hughes and Kappo Kakko respectively.

6’4 » – At 6-foot-4, the towering center immediately became the tallest player on the Canadiens’ roster following Thursday night’s trade.

59 – Dach has 59 points in 154 NHL career games so far, along with six more in nine playoff games.

1 – The Fort Saskatchewan native won gold with Team Canada at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup in 2018. He has also represented Canada on two other occasions: at the World Under 17 years old in 2018, as well as during the World Junior Hockey Championship in 2021.
