Blackhawks Sign Alex Broadhurst

On  Friday, the Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms with forward Alex Broadhurst on a three-year entry-level contract.

Broadhurst, a New Lenox native, played the 2012-13 season with the London Knights of the OHL. He posted 63 points (23 goals, 40 assists) and was plus-30 in 65 regular season games, followed by a stellar postseason that included 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) in 21 playoff games.

The Hawks selected Broadhurst in the 7th round (199th overall) in the 2011 Draft.

One thought on “Blackhawks Sign Alex Broadhurst

  1. Thanks Tab…when I first thought of the Broadhurst’s I thought Bowman drafted one late and signed the other as an UDFA as some sort of a publicity stunt as they were both local boys and life long Hawks fans…but was I ever wrong. Both can flat out play.

    Terry showed he’s already a good Rockford forward and I have no doubt that Alex will as well. They are smart players, that are physical and shy away from nothing. Great kids with great attitudes, and I think they have a future with the Hawks. Yet another stellar draft pick by Bowman (as if McNeil/Danault late in the first, Saad and Clendening in the 2nd, and Andrew Shaw in the 5th weren’t enough.

    I have said it before, but this draft has the makings to become the Hawks best of all time…unreal work by Bowman and company.
