Pro level prospects

Kyle Baun

Kyle Baun was a college free agent signing out of Colgate. Baun impressed the Blackhawks enough to get an entry-level contract. He appeared in three games in 2014-15.

The next season he was projected as a third-line forward. He played two games before being sent to Rockford. After being sent down to Rockford, Baun got injured and missed three months. He has spent the last two seasons with the IceHogs.

Robin Norell

Robin Norell was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. After signing his entry-level contract, Norell reported to the Rockford IceHogs.

While former WJC teammate Gustav Forsling has been recalled to the Blackhawks several times, Norell has spent his time with the organization in Rockford.

Just before this post was put together, the Blackhawks added to their prospect pool.
