Blackhawks sign Clendening

Friday, the Blackhawks announced they have signed 2011 2nd round draft pick Adam Clendening to a 3 year deal.

Clendening, 19, led Hockey East in scoring for defensemen with 4 goals and 29 assists, including 15 points on the power play.

In 2012's World Junior Championships, he led Team USA defensemen in scoring with 5 points in 6 games.

It's highly unlikely that Clendening will get any regular season time with the Blackhawks this season, but it does add another offensive defenseman to the system.

Keep an eye on him during prospects camp and early in this coming preseason.
