The Chicago Blackhawks have made a major signing announcement today, welcoming top prospect Landon Slaggert to the team.

Unfortunately, Slaggert's NCAA season with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish came to an end last night as they were eliminated from the NCAA Big Ten Tournament by the Michigan Wolverines, losing 4-3 in a close match. Despite the loss, Slaggert ended his collegiate career on a high note, contributing a goal and an assist in his final game.

With Notre Dame's season over, Slaggert is now free to sign with the Blackhawks, and that's exactly what happened today. The Blackhawks wasted no time in bringing Slaggert into the fold, a move that brings excitement to the team and its fans.

Throughout his senior year at Notre Dame, Slaggert has been a standout player, showcasing his talent and dedication on the ice. In 36 games this season, he amassed an impressive 31 points, including 20 goals and 11 assists.

The Blackhawks have been supportive of Slaggert's decision to complete his senior year at Notre Dame, and now they look forward to seeing him make a seamless transition to the professional ranks. With Slaggert's skill and potential, he is poised to make a significant impact with the Blackhawks in the near future.
