Another mediocre performance for 45 minutes appeared to have the Blackhawks leaving crucial points on the table in Winnipeg on Sunday night. But a furious third period rally, capped by a game-winning goal from captain Jonathan Toews, left the Jets looking for answers and the Hawks victorious.
With the signings of Kyle Baun and Mike Paliotta on Thursday, the Blackhawks continue adding size to the organization. And looking ahead to potential summer moves, Chicago has some big things coming to Rockford – and the United Center.
On Thursday, the Blackhawks signed Colgate forward Kyle Baun, an undrafted free agent. He will join the Hawks NHL roster.
Baun, 22, is a big power forward (6-2, 210) who posted 14 goals (including four on the power play and one short-handed) and 15 assists in 38 games at Colgate this season. He’s a good skater and contributed on both special teams units all season. Baun participated in the Red Wings development camp last summer.
