Chicago Blackhawks Sign Goaltender

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed Jaxson Stauber to an entry-level contract.

Stauber is an undrafted goaltender who just had himself an excellent season with Providence College. In 37 games played, the 22-year-old had a .921 save percentage and 2.10 goals-against average. Overall, it's clear that the youngster impressed Chicago with these numbers, as they have awarded him with this deal.

With the Blackhawks embarking on a rebuild, it makes sense that they are bringing in a prospect like Stauber. Throughout his college career, he has looked very solid, so it very well could carry over to professional hockey as he continues to develop.

It will be intriguing to see if Stauber is able to cement himself as an NHL goaltender in the future. Overall, there's no real risk in giving him a shot with this ELC.
