The Chicago Blackhawks and general manager Stan Bowman announced some great news on Thursday morning. 

The Blackhawks have signed forward Alex DeBrincat to a 3-year contract extension that runs through the 2022-23 season, with an AAV of $6,400,000.

This is absolutely great news for both sides as they get the deal done early. 

DeBrincat has proven to be an absolute steal from the second round of the draft so far with 128 points in 164 games played so far.
