The Chicago Blackhawks have three new additions signed and ready to go for next season.
The Chicago Blackhawks are always looking towards the future with their signings. They like to get their kids that they drafted brought over as soon as they can and they like to bring in some young kids that they didn’t draft as well. Despite the NHL lineup getting ready for some play-in action against the Edmonton Oilers, the front office is out there making moves to try and improve the team for 2020-21 and beyond.
There was a lot of question as to whether or not Ian Mitchell would be playing in the series against the Edmonton Oilers. The deal was agreed to a few weeks prior but it became final on Thursday. The Hawks are going to choose not to burn a year of his entry-level contract and have him make his NHL debut next season.
