The Chicago Blackhawks announced they have signed Red Deer Rebels’ forward Byron Froese (FRAYZ) to three-year entry-level contract.

Froese, 20, shared ninth in the Western Hockey League with a career-high 43 goals, including a league-leading 24 power-play markers, and ranked third on the Red Deer Rebels with a career-best 81 points in 70 regular-season games.
