Chicago Blackhawks Make A Panik Extension

451

The Chicago Blackhawks have comes to terms with veteran forward Richard Panik. It is a two-year deal is reportedly worth $2.8 million per season.

Panik revitalized his career with the Blackhawks last season with 22 goals and 22 assists. Both career highs.

General Manager Stan Bowman had this to say about Panik, “We were pleased with the consistency he showed throughout the season.”

Panik is getting a value that is consistent with the free agent market but is a bit high for the cap-strapped Blackhawks. At only 26 years old, hopefully this is incentive for Panik to increase his production. He’ll only be 28 when this deal ends and could earn a lot more with a couple 50 point seasons.

Victor Ejdsell does it AGAIN for the Rockford IceHogs! The RED HOT Ejdsell keeps the IceHogs alive in the AHL Western Conference Finals. His 2nd goal of the night was the Game-Winning Goal (GWG) in OT.

Rockford IceHogs’ forward, Victor Ejdsell, takes a perfectly placed outlet pass from the IceHogs’ defensive zone all the way to the house. I cannot wait to see this kid do the same thing in a Blackhawks’ sweater next season.
