Blackhawks Daily: Levshunov Signs; Cautionary Tale for Crosby



The highly anticipated move Blackhawks fans were watching for happened much sooner than even Kyle Davidson said it would.  Artyom Levshunov signed his entry-level deal with Chicago Saturday, a three-year deal worth $935K.

Levshunov would have to be incredible to make the team out of camp. This is only because they signed a ton of veterans this off-season which limits the space. A few good months/the entire year with the Rockford Ice Hogs (who should be very good) would be great for his development. 

Levshunov follows the other two picks in the top three who have signed an entry-level deal. Macklin Celebrini (San Jose Sharks) and Beckett Sennecke (Anaheim Ducks) have also put pen to paper barely a week since the draft.

Outside of the top three, Jett Luchanko (13th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers) and Berkeley Catton (8th overall by the Seattle Kraken) have also signed. It is a good number of players for a class that has only been drafted for a couple of weeks now.

Kevin Korchinski will be one of the benefactors of the roster battle royale that will be arriving this fall.

Oliver Moore is having a good summer. He is ready to force the Chicago Blackhawks to give him an ELC after a good 2024-25 with Minnesota. 

Kyle Davidson promised that he was going to improve the Chicago Blackhawks. So far, he is on that path. 

Nick Foligno did his part in recruiting Tyler Bertuzzi to play for the Chicago Blackhawks in free agency.
