Vince Hinostroza put an emphasis on building his confidence over the summer.

"This summer, I did a lot of mental focus — read some books and stuff," Hinostroza said. "Over half the game is mental. If you have that intact, now you’re just going to be able to go out there and play. I think last year, mentally, I was all over the place as a younger player. I just want to stay in a good place now and let my skill and speed take over." He got into 49 games with Chicago in 2016-17, but was limited to six goals and 14 points. This season, he's scored nine goals and 22 points in 23 AHL contests. That earned him a call up on Friday and he had four shots in 12:02 minutes in his Blackhawks season debut.
