Blackhawks Add Two More Depth Forwards in Free Agency

Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks announced two more contracts on Wednesday afternoon. Both of them are one-year, two-way deals, meaning the players can move back and forth between Rockford and Chicago.

Luke Philp, 26, signed a two-way deal worth $750,000 in the NHL ($250,000 AHL). He signed with the Calgary Flames as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and spent the past four seasons in the AHL. He’s listed at 5-10 and 180 pounds and finished last season with Stockton (Calgary’s AHL affiliate).

Philp ranked fourth on Stockton in goals (21) and fifth in points (44) in 66 games last season. He added a goal and four assists in 10 games of the 2022 Calder Cup Playoffs.

Brett Seney, 26, led the Toronto Marlies with 59 points last season. He signed a two-way deal worth $750,000 in the NHL ($400,000 AHL). He was originally a sixth-round pick (No. 157) by the New Jersey Devils in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Seney is listed at 5-9 and 156 pounds. He appeared in two games with the Maple Leafs last year, failing to register a point. He has 55 NHL games on this resume with New Jersey and Toronto, scoring five goals with eight assists.
