Chicago Blackhawks Re-Sign Goalie to Multi-Year Extension

The Chicago Blackhawks took care of some internal business as they have re-signed goaltender Arvid Soderblom to a two-year contract worth $962,500 per season.

The 23-year-old Swedish netminder was undrafted and appeared in 15 games for the Blackhawks in 2022-23, posting a 3.45 GAA and a .894 Sv.%. He's projected to get the majority of the minutes next season in Chicago as they begin their rebuild with projected #1 overall pick Connor Bedard.

Soderblom has appeared in the playoffs the past two seasons for the AHL's Rockford IceHogs, appearing in five games both seasons.
