Evan barratt is going pro
The Chicago Blackhawks announced 4 signings today that included Pending RFA Goalie Kevin Lankinen (2 years $800k per), Center Matthew Highmore (2 years $725k per), and prospect Andrei Altybarmakyan (2 year $817,500 per). The main attraction of these signings was Forward Evan Barratt who will be forgoing his Senior year at Penn State as he signed a 3 year $870k per deal.
This kid is going to be something special and I for one cannot wait for next season to see him tear it up in the Indian Head. In his three seasons at Penn St he put up 95 points (39 goals and 56 assist) in 98 games. If he comes as advertise, he will be a great addition to our loaded front end and will help bring this team back to where it was as one of the more dominate offenses in the league.
Here are some of his highlights with the Nitty Lions:
