The Chicago Blackhawks signed Reese Johnson to a two-year, $1.6 million contract extension Wednesday.

The 23-year-old forward has scored six points (one goal, five assists) in 28 games this season. He has also scored three points (one goal, two assists) in seven games for the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL. Johnson suffered a broken clavicle on December 11, which caused him to miss a significant chunk of time in the middle of the season.

“Reese’s work ethic and competitiveness are characteristics we’re always looking for in players we have in our system,” Blackhawks general manager Kyle Davidson said in a release. “He is difficult to play against and brings a hard-nosed mentality to each game. Possessing those attributes makes us excited to be able to keep him in the fold of our organization.”

Reese Johnson has scored 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) in 83 career NHL games for the Chicago Blackhawks. He signed with Chicago as an undrafted free agent in March 2019 after a 100-point season (55 goals, 45 assists) with the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL.
