Hockey fans all over the world rejoiced when National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman and National Hockey League Players Association executive director Donald Fehr announced they had reached an agreement to end the lockout.

While we wait for the start of the 48-game season, the Prospect Previews will help fill the void until the puck drops.

This edition of the Prospect Preview will look at Chicago Blackhawks prospect Vincent Hinostroza.

The Bartlett, IL native has played three seasons with the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League.

The hard-working forward is enjoying a productive season in Waterloo. Through 26 games, Hinostroza has scored 16 goals and 19 assists for 35 point.

His no-nonsense approach to the game is a definite asset to his game. Brings a tremendous work ethic to the table and has a great set of offensive instincts.

Hinostroza is an aggressive forecheck and has a nose for the net, which makes him a nightmarish sight for goaltenders. Moreover, he can use his good hands to set up his teammates.

In his first season with the Black Hawks, Hinostroza scored 20 goals and 24 assists in 55 games, which was behind 16-year-old Taylor Cammarata.

 He represented the United States at the U19 World Junior A Championships in 2011 and would have had a productive playoffs for Waterloo but suffered an injury causing him to miss the majority of the playoffs.

The only disadvantage Hinostroza has is his size. He is listed at 5-9 but he is speedy and should find a role in college.

At the conclusion of the 2012-13 seasons, Hinostroza will enroll at the University of Notre Dame. He will take time to make it to the NHL, but could pan out to be a role player for the Chicago Blackhawks.
