The Blackhawks prevented Alex DeBrincat from becoming a restricted free agent next season by signing the 21-year-old forward to a three-year, $19.2 million contract extension on October 3. DeBrincat will make $5.1 million in each of the first two years of the extension and $9 million in 2022-23. He will be the team’s third-highest paid forward behind Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews when his deal kicks in next season.

A native of Farmington Hills, Michigan, DeBrincat was selected by the Blackhawks in the second round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. He recorded 127 points in 63 games with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League in 2016-17 and debuted with the Blackhawks in 2017-18. He scored 28 goals and added 24 assists that year for 52 points and improved upon those numbers in 2018-19 with 41 goals and 35 assists for 76 points.
