A Packed Signing

Petr Mrazeks Road to the Blackhawks

Petr Mrazek shares his journey to the Chicago Blackhawks after a diverse and extensive career in the NHL. Born and raised in the Czech Republic, he moved to Canada at 17 and was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the 5th round of the NHL Draft. Throughout his career, Mrazek spent six years with the Red Wings, two months with the Philadelphia Flyers, three years with the Carolina Hurricanes, and one year with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is currently in his second year with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Tuning out the Trade Deadline noise

The NHL Trade deadline is a tense period for players, as their homes, teams, and lives can change suddenly without any action on their part. As this year's deadline approached, Petr chose to ignore the distractions. With rumors about players' futures rampant among the media, friends, and on social media, he focused on blocking out the external chatter to concentrate on his responsibilities.

Getting Extended with the Chicago Blackhawks

Petr Mrazek recently extended his contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite speculation about his future in Chicago as the trade deadline neared, he and the Blackhawks reached an agreement to keep him in the city for an additional two years. Petr expressed his enthusiasm for playing in Chicago, highlighting his affection for the team and the city.

Living in and Loving Chicago

Petr mentions that out of all the cities he's lived in during his NHL career, which spans five teams, Chicago is his favorite. He particularly appreciates the city's diverse and high-quality food options.
