Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Another Chicago Blackhawks player decided to stick around instead of try out the greener pastures of the NHL. Trevor van Riemsdyk who looked to be a solid defenseman before becoming injury riddled, signed an extension to stay with the Chicago Blackhawks and looks to be a guaranteed starter come opening night against the New York Rangers on October 7th!
TVR did see some duty late in the playoffs after returning from his second bad injury of the season, and he will get his name put on the Stanley Cup this summer. His play was alright during the playoffs, but most fans are looking forward to the return of the play of Trevor van Riemsdyk showed off during the first few weeks of the season where he was pretty rock solid on the back line.
The Chicago Blackhawks will now only need to wait and see if Johnny Oduya sticks around and joins the team for a discounted hometown price, and if he does the Chicago Blackhawks defense shouldn’t miss a beat especially if Stephen Johns is as good as advertised.
One thing that is for sure is that your Wednesday morning links are coming up next!
