RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Darling was decent in limited action last season, compiling a 12-8-1 record with a 2.58 GAA and .915 save percentage over 28 appearances. The University of Maine product is firmly entrenched as the 'Hawks backup goaltender, but may not see as much playing time in 2016-17. Chicago's starting netminder, Corey Crawford, was sidelined for nearly a month with an upper-body ailment towards the end of last season, leading to an inflated start total for Darling. The 27-year-old goaltender has proven to be a capable backup during his two years with the Blackhawks, and should be in line for around 20 starts in 2016-17. He'll also be playing behind one of the best teams in the NHL this season, making him a player owners should feel comfortable slotting into their lineups whenever he's between the pipes.

2015-16

Darling put up some pretty impressive numbers in limited service in 2014-15 (14-8-2, 2.20 GAA, .927 save percentage) and was instrumental in the Blackhawks’ first-round series win over the Predators. He went 3-1 with a 2.21 GAA and a .936 save percentage before stumbling in Game 6 and turning the starting job back over to Corey Crawford. But it set the stage for the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup run, and Darling proved he could play big minutes under challenging situations. This season, the former University of Maine twinetender could be in line for 30 starts or more, given Crawford’s propensity for running hot and cold. He’s a great guy to stash away for those moments, and will make for a solid daily play almost any time he takes the ice. He’ll be one of the best backups in the NHL.
