The Chicago Blackhawks signed center Brandon Pirri to a three-year, entry-level contract Tuesday.

Pirri, 19, was a 2009 second-round pick (No. 59). Last season, he led all rookie scorers in the ECAC with 43 points (11 goals, 32 assists) in 39 games as a freshman at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute. A Toronto native, Pirri's 32 assists paced the Engineers while he ranked third in goals and second in scoring on the club. He was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team at the conclusion of his freshman season.
Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
