The Stamford, Conn., native previously registered 84 points (47G, 37A) over three seasons at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Haggerty also participated in the United States National Team Development Program from 2009-11.
Raanta, 26, posted a 7-4-1 record, including one shutout, a .936 save percentage and 1.89 goals-against average in 14 games for the Blackhawks last season. The Rauma, Finland, native also notched an 8-1-1 record, including two shutouts, a .918 save percentage and 2.39 GAA in 11 games with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League last season.
