The Chicago Blackhawks and general manager Stan Bowman announced a contract signing on Friday morning. 

Bowman and the Blackhawks announced that they've signed forward Brandon Hagel to a three year contract. 

The deal carries an AAV of $1.5million. 

It's a well deserved contract for the very hard working forward who's more than earned his spot on the team. 

The 22 year old registered 24 points in 52 games last year which included 9 goals. 

More details to come.
