Blackhawks Sign Goalie Matt Tomkins
Locking down Tomkins gives the Blackhawks further organizational depth in net.
The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with Rockford IceHogs goalie Matt Tomkins on a two-year, two-way contract.
Tomkins has spent time in the Blackhawks organization splitting time between AHL Rockford and ECHL Indy over the past three seasons. This year, he has improved his performance to the tune of a 2.45 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage over nine games with the IceHogs.
With Corey Crawford and Robin Lehner set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season, locking down Tomkins gives the Blackhawks further organizational depth in net. Fellow Rockford goalie Collin Delia signed a three-year extension in February of 2019.
