Blackhawks decide Petr Mrazek’s furure

He’s in his second year with the team.



The Chicago Blackhawks are continuing their rebuilding process,’and have seen fit to include goaltender Petr Mrazek beyond this season. 

Earlier today, it was announced that he has been re-signed to an two year contract extension that carries an AAV of $4.25 million per season.

"Yeah, I’m really happy we [got] it done," Mrazek said Wednesday. "I’m grateful for the opportunity I got last year and what it’s going to bring us moving forward."

"Petr is a strong goaltender who continues to display the athleticism and calming style of play that has made him so successful in this league," Blackhawks general manager Kyle Davidson said . "He’s had an immense impact within our group, and we’re excited to have Petr back."

So far in his second year with the Blackhawks, Mrazek has a record of 12-17-1 with a 3.01 goals-against average, .907 save percentage and a single shutout. 

Naturally, the main goal for Mrazek and the Blackhawks is to get back to winning.

"Obviously the No. 1 thing is to win games and be part of a winning team and having fun in the locker room while winning," Mrazek said. "It’s something we’re trying to change here, the culture and everything, and it’s been fun for me to play like this, to be playing every night and being healthy, feeling good about yourself.

"Having good games definitely helps but the No. 1 thing for me is to turn things around here as a team and start winning games soon."
