Chicago Blackhawks are eagerly trying to add punch to mark their range, and they added a perspective to their system on Sunday morning, they agreed to a three-year agreement with Alexandre Fortin.
Fortin, who joined the Blackhawks in their Prospect Camp earlier this year and was a star in the early stages of training camp, notched 43 points in 54 games with Rouyn-Horanda Huskies last season in the QMJHL. He scored 19 goals in those games, and scored four more during the playoffs.
The Blackhawks signed Fortin as they look to add depth to their list of rating after the departures of players like Teuvo Teravainen during the offseason.
It is unlikely that will Fortin NHL outgoing team alignment of training camp, but the fact that they have signed an entry-level contract suggests that the team thinks much of his chances of making the team at some point in the near future.
