With the 216th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2021 NHL Draft, the Blackhawks have selected Jalen Luypen.

Luypen is a 5-foot-10, 155-pound forward from Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL. NHL Central Scouting ranks the 19-year-old 133rd among North American skaters in this year’s draft class. Luypen carries a left-handed shot.

During the 2020-21 season, Luypen registered 29 points (16 goals, 13 assists) in 23 games for the Oil Kings. Here are Luypen’s stats to date:

Luypen becomes the fourth forward selected by the Blackhawks this year, following Colton Dach (62nd overall, second round), Victor Stjernborg (108th overall, fourth round), and Ilya Safonov (172nd overall, sixth round). Luypen is the Blackhawks’ eighth and final pick of the 2021 NHL Draft.

The 2020-21 season was a breakout campaign for Luypen, scoring above a point-per-game pace. That followed an 18-point season across 64 games in 2019-20. Due to his small stature, Luypen will have to let his point production do the talking as he continues to develop.
