Hagel, who turns 23 on Aug. 27, was marvelous for the Hawks last year. He scored nine goals with 15 assists in 52 games and seamlessly moved around the roster, contributing in a variety of roles.
He was originally drafted in the sixth round (#159 overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres, but signed with the Blackhawks in 2018.
