Blackhawks Sign Leddy to Two Year Deal

The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have agreed to terms with defenseman Nick Leddy on a two-year contract.
“We are pleased to announce that Nick will remain a core member of our organization,” said Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman. “Over the course of the past three seasons, Nick has shown continuous development and we think he will be essential to our long-term success.”
Leddy, 22, ranked third among Blackhawks defensemen with 18 points (6G, 12A) and a plus-15 rating in 48 regular-season games. The Eden Prairie, Minn., native set career highs in goals, power-play goals (2) and game-winning goals (2). He added two assists in 23 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to remain in Chicago and be a part of this special group of young, experienced players on a team in a winning environment,” said Leddy. “The organization is first class both on and off the ice, and I am honored to be a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.”
The 6-0, 191-pound defenseman has tallied 62 points (13G, 49A) in 176 career regular-season games with the Blackhawks from 2010 to 2013. He has recorded five points (1G, 4A) in 36 career postseason contests.
Leddy was originally selected by the Minnesota Wild in the first round (16th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Chicago from Minnesota on Feb. 12, 2010.
