How will the Chicago Blackhawks signing defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk impact how they approach the NHL Draft?
The Chicago Blackhawks made a sneaky acquisition on Tuesday afternoon, signing defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk to an entry-level contract. The 23-year-old was a former seventh-round pick of the Flyers in the 2017 NHL Draft, and Philadelphia lost exclusive rights to him last month.
Kalynuk stands at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, and is a left-handed shot. He’s an offensive-minded defenseman who is capable of running the power play, according to his coaches at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
