Reese Johnson Signs Two-Year Extension with the Chicago Blackhawks
Penticton, BC (Canada) - Kaizen Sports Agency is pleased to announce that client, Reese Johnson, has signed a contract extension with the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL) beginning next season.
The Saskatchewan native has signed a two-year extension which will run through the 2023-24 season.
The 23-year-old power forward has spent the majority of this season playing center on the Blackhawks fourth line providing sound defensive play and energy. Johnson’s 49.26% face-off percentage has also been a bright spot for the rebuilding organization.
Johnson prides himself on being a two-way forward but his best attribute is keeping opponents off the score sheet most notably with his size and skating.
“I felt there was an organic fit between the team and the player,“ stated Kaizen Managing Director Michael O’Rafferty. “It’s no secret Chicago is beginning a true rebuild. Finding players with a positive, can-do attitude is critical at the ground floor. Innate leadership abilities are rare and those who know Reese understand it is a hardwired trait. Congratulations to Reese and his family.”
