On Monday morning the Chicago Blackhawks announced the team has signed defenseman Alec Regula to a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal has a $897,500 AAV.
Regula, 19, played for the Chicago Steel in the USHL in 2016-17 before moving on to the London Knights. He is currently a co-captain of the Knights. He has seven goals and eight assists in 14 games with the Knights this season.
Chicago acquired Regula from the Detroit Red Wings for Brendan Perlini earlier this season. A righthanded shot, he is listed at 6-4 and 207 pounds. He was originally a third round pick (#67 overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2018 NHL Draft.
