CHICAGO, Ill. - The Chicago Blackhawks today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Brett Seney on a one-year, two-way contract that runs through the 2024-25 season.

Seney, 28, led the Rockford IceHogs in goals (23), assists (40) and points (63) in 68 games, tying his career best in goals and setting a new career high in points. The forward was named Rockford's Team MVP in the 2023-24 Team Awards, and he was the first IceHog since Brandon Pirri in 2012-13 to hit the 60-point plateau. He was also the first IceHog since Pirri to rank within the top 20 of league scoring, finishing tied for eighth in points and 11th in power-play goals amongst all AHL players during the 2023-24 regular season. Seney's 63 points notched a new Rockford's AHL team record for points by a winger in a single season that was previously set by David Gust at 59 in 2022-23.

The London, Ontario native's first season with Rockford came in 2022-23 when he ranked second in team scoring with 54 points (23G, 31A) in in 59 games and was named an AHL All-Star. With 117 combined points over two seasons, Seney has the third-most points in two consecutive seasons in IceHogs AHL history behind Pirri (131 - 2011-13) and Petri Kontiola (121 - 2007-09). Seney's career point total with the Hogs places him in 10th on Rockford's AHL career scoring list.

The 5-foot-9, 167-pound forward has registered 14 points (6G, 8A) in 66 career NHL games with the Blackhawks (2022-24), Toronto Maple Leafs (2021-22), and New Jersey Devils (2018-20). He's also compiled 257 points (93G, 164A) in 318 career AHL games.

Seney was originally drafted by New Jersey in the sixth round (157th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.
