Saint Lawrence Freshman Matt Carey Signs With Chicago Blackhawks
CHN Staff Report
Saint Lawrence freshmen forward Matt Carey has signed an entry-level contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. Carey could join the Blackhawks as early as tomorrow.
Carey's signing comes a day after his brother, SLU senior Greg Carey, signed a contract with the Phoenix Coyotes.
Carey finished his freshman season last weekend, totaling 37 points (18 goals, 19 assists) in 38 games. Despite being a freshman, Carey turned 22 years old in February — his brother Greg is 23 — after sitting out a redshirt season last year.
