On Tuesday morning, Blackhawks forward prospect Josiah Slavin posted an image of him signing his entry-level contract with the club on Instagram. The Blackhawks tweeted the ELC is a two-year deal with a $842,500 cap hit.
Slavin, 22, was originally a seventh round pick (#193 overall) by the Hawks in the 2018 NHL Draft. Listed at 6-3 and 190 pounds, he’s a left-handed shot. He spent the last two seasons at Colorado College. He will sign an ATO and immediately report to the Rockford IceHogs for the remainder of the 2021 season.
His brother, Jaccob, played two seasons on the blue line at Colorado College before joining the Carolina Hurricanes
