BREAKING: Chicago Blackhawks announce biggest signing of the year

Published January 12, 2024 at 12:24
The Chicago Blackhawks have locked in Nick Foligno with a new deal, keeping him on board until the 2025-26 season.

His yearly cap hit is set at $4.5 million. This move comes as Foligno was about to hit free agency after the current season.

Obtained from Boston last year, Foligno initially signed a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Blackhawks. In a short time, he's become a key leader on the team.

Extending his contract made perfect sense for the organization as they navigate their ongoing rebuilding efforts.

Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson praised Foligno's impact, stating:

«The impact Nick has already had on our team in such a short time is a testament to his work ethic and dedication to helping the players around him succeed. His hard work on the ice, nightly energy, and versatility in any situation have been tremendous assets. His leadership skills, both on and off the ice, have been instrumental in what we are building, and we are excited for him to continue pushing our team forward."

This extension reflects the Blackhawks' commitment to Foligno's contributions and belief in his role shaping the team's future.
