Blackhawks sign Orland Park native Terry Broadhurst

The Blackhawks made a local kid part of the organization Monday when they signed forward Terry Broadhurst to a two-year deal.

Broadhurst, who is expected to join the Rockford IceHogs, is from Orland Park. The 23-year-old just finished his junior season at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, where he was team captain and had career-bests in goals (16), assists (20) and points (36) in 38 games this year.

Broadhurst isn't a draft pick of the Hawks. But the team did take his younger brother, Alex, in the seventh round with 199th overall pick in 2011. The Broadhurst brothers both attended the Hawks' prospect camp this summer.

''Off the ice [we'll think about] the brother stuff, but on the ice it's just another hockey game,'' Terry Broadhurst said at the time. ''It's nice playing with my brother, but no matter who's your teammate, you've got to play hard for the other guy."

Terry Broadhurst, who was invited to camp for the second time, apparently caught the attention of the Hawks. He also was named to All-WCHA Academic Team each of the last two years.
