The Blackhawks extend Connor Murphy

Ben Pope: The Chicago Blackhawks have signed defenseman Connor Murphy to a four-year contract extension with a $4.4 million salary cap hit.

Murphy is scheduled to make $3.85 million this season and would have been an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Mark Lazerus: “That’s pretty darn team-friendly in both term & money. He’ll be 32 when the deal ends.”

Chicago Blackhawks Communications: Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman after extending Murphy.

“When we acquired Connor in the summer of 2017, we had visions of him growing as both a player and leader in our organization for many years. He has transformed into a defenseman capable of matching up with the opponent’s best players and someone we trust to help us preserve a lead in the final minutes. Connor’s voice carries weight in our locker room as a veteran presence and we’re thrilled that his development and leadership will continue as a Blackhawk.”
