The Chicago Blackhawks announced that they have re-signed forward Philipp Kurashev and defenseman Caleb Jones each to one-year contracts. Jones' contract is worth $1.35MM, while Kurashev's is worth $750K. Both players were RFAs. By re-signing the pair, Chicago has now re-signed all remaining RFAs on their books.


Caleb, the younger brother of fellow Chicago defenceman Seth Jones, recently completed his first year as a member of the Blackhawks, where he set several career-highs, including five goals and 10 assists for 15 points over 51 games. Caleb will probably never reach the scoring heights of older brother Seth, but he has established himself as a reliable defender for the Blackhawks who can play in all situations.
Kurashev will return to the Chicago Blackhawks for a third season. Since coming over from Switzerland, the 22-year-old has 37 points (14 goals, 23 assists) in 121 games. During the 2021-22 campaign, he notched 21 points (six goals, 15 assists) in 67 games.
With the Blackhawks in full rebuild mode, both young players will have plenty of opportunities to show if they should be part of the long term plan in Chicago.
