The Chicago Blackhawks have made a total of six signings since NHL free agency opened. Beyond the widely reported signings, Kyle Davidson added a pair of lesser-known names. The Blackhawks signed forwards Luke Philp and Brett Seney to two-way contracts. Each player’s deal runs for one year and carries a $750K salary cap hit.
Philp, a right-handed center, spent the last three seasons with the Stockton Heat of the AHL. The 26-year-old recorded 44 points (21 goals, 23 assists) in 66 games last season. Philp has not cracked an NHL roster yet, spending his three professional seasons with Stockton. In 148 AHL games, he has 92 points (48 goals, 44 assists).
Coming over from the Maple Leafs’ organization, Seney played most of his 2021-22 campaign in the AHL. He scored 59 points (17 goals, 42 assists) in 62 games for the Toronto Marlies. However, Seney does have 55 games of NHL experience under his belt. With the New Jersey Devils, he notched 13 points (five goals, eight assists) across 51 games in 2018-19, his only extended look in the NHL.
Luke Philp and Brett Seney join a forward-heavy Chicago Blackhawks’ free-agent class. The Hawks also signed forwards Andreas Athanasiou, Max Domi, and Collin Blackwell in addition to goaltender Alex Stalock today.
