Hawks Sign D Ryan Stanton

March 12, 2010

Minor dealing today. The Blackhawks have signed Ryan Stanton of the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors (Moose Jaw is the city. I know, Canada is goofy). The 3-year entry level contract starts next year.  We could see him in Rockford for the playoffs though. Stanton has 10 goals and 30 assists in 57 games this year.  He stands in at 6’2″ and 201 lbs. There’s no career projection from him yet, but now that he’s signed with an NHL team, I expect one will be up in the coming months.  In his 4 seasons in the WHL Stanton has had 15 fights.  Quite a few of them coming after he makes a clean hit.  He’s got a knack for catching puck carriers with their heads down and delivering a crushing blow.  Check out his full fight card with videos at his Profile.

Blackhawks News:

Huet will be between the pipes against the Flyers on Saturday (in Philly at noon CST.)  Niemi gets the nod for Sunday at home against the Caps. Don’t forget that game is at 11:30 am CST and we lose an hour of sleep Saturday night thanks to Daylight Savings Time kickin in.
