We discussed this to some degree yesterday: The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have signed Hugh Jessiman.
Yes, that Hugh Jessiman.
So my thought for today is simple:
What would your reaction be if Jessiman turns out to be a late-blooming legit NHL player?
Or worse, a star?
Yeah, I know. Keep dreaming. He’s there to fill depth on the Blackhawks minor-league roster.
Here’s the paragraph on Big Hugh in the NHL.com story:
“Jessiman, 26, ranked third on the Milwaukee Admirals during the 2009-10 season with a career-high 20 goals, and third with a career-best 42 points, in 78 regular-season AHL contests. Originally selected 12th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers, Jessiman has posted 72 goals, 71 assists, and 512 penalty minutes in 316 regular-season AHL tilts over parts of five seasons with Hartford (2005-08) and Milwaukee (2008-10).”
