The 2020–21 Chicago Blackhawks season was the 95th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on September 25, 1926.[1] The Blackhawks were led by head coach Jeremy Colliton in his second full year as head coach. On December 20, 2020, the league temporarily realigned into four divisions with no conferences due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing closure of the Canada-United States border. As a result of this realignment, the Blackhawks remained in the Central Division this season and only played games against the other teams in their realigned division during the regular season.

On May 3, the Blackhawks were eliminated from playoff contention after a 5–2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.[2]
