Ostman set a single-season franchise record with a 2.34 goals-against average and matched the most wins in a year by a Chicago goaltender with 25 victories between the pipes.

“It’s nice to see so many players from this year’s team as well as so many players who will be part of next year’s team recognized by NHL Central Scouting in their final rankings,” said Steel General Manager Ryan Hardy. “As a staff, we’re proud of the growth of our group and hope to hear all of these names, and hopefully a couple more, called when the 2020 NHL Draft eventually takes place.”
