Blackhawks sign Trevor van Riemsdyk to 2-year deal
The Chicago Blackhawks have signed University of New Hampshire defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to a two-year contract.

The Chicago Blackhawks announced Monday that they have agreed to terms with free-agent defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk on a two-year contract, which begins at the start of next season.

Van Riemsdyk, 22, had 23 points (four goals, 19 assists) in 26 games this season at the University of New Hampshire. He ranked fifth on the team in points and sixth in assists.

He was named a NCAA First-Team All-American and Hockey East First-Team All-Star last season and to the Hockey East All-Rookie Team in 2011-12.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
