BREAKING NEWS - The Blackhawks Have Announced a 3-Year Signing

Published March 25, 2023 at 12:06

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed forward prospect Paul Ludwinski to a three-year, entry-level contract that will keep him with the team until the end of the 2025-26 season. The deal comes with an affordable cap hit of $931,666, giving the Blackhawks some much-needed financial flexibility as they continue to rebuild their roster.

Ludwinski, a native of Illinois, was selected by the Blackhawks in the fourth round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. The 19-year-old forward is a hard-working player with good size and skill, and he has shown plenty of potential in his junior career.

During the 2020-21 season, Ludwinski played for the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League (USHL), where he scored 11 goals and added 12 assists in 51 games. He also helped lead the Steel to the Clark Cup championship, earning playoff MVP honors in the process.

With Ludwinski now signed to an entry-level contract, he will have the opportunity to develop his game further with the Blackhawks organization. While it remains to be seen if he will be able to crack the NHL lineup in the near future, Ludwinski's signing is a positive step for a team that is looking to build for the future.
