Thrashers Sign Forward Andrew Ladd

The Atlanta Thrashers avoided arbitration again today by signing restricted free agent Andrew Ladd to a one year, $2.35 million contract. He tallied 17 goals and 21 assists on the Blackhawks last season. It’s very much possible that we will see the former 1st rounder on Atlanta’s checking line, and he could fill in on the second line with Dustin Byfuglien and Rich Peverley. He began the season in the top six last year until Marian Hossa returned from injury, so he has experience in that role.
