Blackhawks Sign Garret Ross

The Blackhawks have reportedly agreed to terms with Garret Ross on a three-year entry-level contract. According to the website of the Saginaw Spirit, Ross will report to Rockford.

Ross, who will turn 21 at the end of May, was a teammate of Brandon Saad’s at Saginaw last year. The Blackhawks selected him in the fifth round (139th overall) of the 2012 Draft.

He finished the 2012-13 season ranked (in the OHL):

  • 4th (tie) with 44 goals
  • 4th with four short-handed goals
  • 7th with 90 points
  • 15th (tie) with 46 assists
  • 14th in plus-minus (plus-31), and
  • 14th with 114 penalty minutes

    So with the signing of Ross, does that mean the Hawks are now back at the maximum of 50 contracts?

    I read K.Hayes was going back to Boston College, so don’t need a contract there, but I thought Stephen Johns had decided to leave Notre Dame and sign with the Hawks – meaning the Hawks would have to be under the 50 maximum in order to sign Johns.

    Just curious if anyone has the scoop on any of that.

    I’m excited to see this kid play, he has had a heck of a season and has gone from just a prospect to top tier prospect. Hopefully he keeps it up. Go Hawks!

    For all those stat nerds out there,….it looks like it will be Hawks v Wings in the 1st round or possibly Hawks v Dallas (Phx loss last night all but knocked them out)
