Observations

 

May 2019- The Chicago Blackhawks have signed left winger Anton Wedin to a one-year entry-level contract. This signing comes on the heels of Wedins best season as a pro, where he played for Timra IK of the SHL. Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton has experience with Wedin, having coached against him in the SHL and that may have affected Wedins decision to sign with the Blackhawks. He is waiver exempt for this contract and will become a UFA upon its completion.

 

There are a lot of things to like about Wedin’s game on the ice. He is an above average skater, which has turned into an organizational must in the past few years. He brings a high level of compete to the rink every night and plays a very smart, if not overly flashy, game. Don’t look for highlight reel plays from him. You’ll most likely find him set up in the right position on the ice, both offensively and defensively. The Blackhawks have a bunch of hungry players vying for a role in their bottom six which makes it far from a guarantee he will start the season in the NHL but given the fact he is only signed for one season, you can bet he will see action at some point.
