The Chicago Blackhawks season is almost over, with just six games left, in a really rough season ending with no playoffs for the first time since 2008. However, these last few games will be worth watching for Blackhawks fans, mainly to see the debuts of prospects Victor Ejdsell and Dylan Sikura. These two players will be important for the future and now they have the chance to play alongside Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad for the first time.

The games themselves may have no importance when it comes to the W-L results, but getting them playing time and experience will only benefit Ejdsell and Sikura.

Both of these players will make their debuts this week, but on different nights. Monday's game will see the debut of Ejdsell, who came over from Nashville in the Ryan Hartman trade and spent his last two games in AHL Rockford. Sikura, who officially signed this weekend, is said to make his debut as early as this Thursday. His last hockey action was with Northeastern University.

Victor Ejdsell

Ejdsell (22) is originally from Sweden and has played in several Swedish leagues, as well as his High School league and international tournaments. Much of last year was spent in the Allsvenskan league and he scored 25 goals and had 32 assists in 50 games. This season before coming to the Blackhawks organization, he had signed with the Nashville Predators and spent that time playing in the SHL, scoring 20 goals and having 14 assists in 50 games.

He did pick up an assist in one of his two AHL games this year.

Ejdsell is a big kid, 6'5", 214 lbs. His size can be a mismatch for a number of players while being a solid scoring threat. The Blackhawks (during their run of greatness) have not been an overly big or physical team, so having someone of his size that can score can be very valuable moving forward.

He also has played both wing and center, which can give the team some versatility.

Dylan Sikura

His official signing took place over the weekend right after he played his final NCAA game -- a two-year deal.

He will immediately report to the Chicago Blackhawks. According to The Athletic's Scott Powers he will not be able to play until Thursday due to visa Reasons, but he should already be in Chicago. Sikura was born in Ontario, Canada.

Sikura (22) played the last four years with Northeastern University after three years previously with the Aurora Tigers of the OJHL. His last two seasons in the NCAA he scored at least 20 goals and had 50 points. He totaled 58 goals and 88 assists in 137 games with Northeastern including a career-high 22 goals this season. He is much smaller than Ejdsell, but he can use his agility and great puck-handling abilities to be effective. Sikura is a center, which is important going forward since the center depth overall on the Blackhawks' roster has been lacking.
