Rockford, Ill.- The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Thursday that the club has agreed to terms with right wing Brandon Segal (SEE-guhl) on a one-year contract.
Segal, 28, skated with the Rockford IceHogs during the 2004-05 season when Rockford was a member of the United Hockey League. The winger tallied nine points (5g-4a) in 10 regular season contests for the Hogs and added 11 goals and five assists in 11 playoff games. Segal’s 11 lamp lighters are the most for any IceHogs skater in a postseason.
With the Dallas Stars last season, Segal registered five goals, 10 points and 41 penalty minutes in 46 regular-season games. He also appeared in 30 contests with the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars, notching 17 points (7g-10a) and 38 penalty minutes during his eighth professional season. The Richmond, British Columbia native has collected 22 points (11G, 11A) and 79 penalty minutes in 92 career regular-season National Hockey League tilts over parts of four campaigns with the Tampa Bay Lightning (2008-09), Los Angeles Kings (2009-10) and Stars (2009-11).
Segal has also racked up 107 goals, 208 points and 547 penalty minutes in 455 career regular-season AHL matchups spanning eight seasons. He tallied professional career highs with 26 goals, 26 assists and 52 points in 69 games with the Norfolk Admirals in 2008-09. The Nashville Predators second choice, 102nd overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Segal helped the Milwaukee Admirals capture the 2004 Calder Cup and reach the AHL Finals in 2006.
