Chicago Blackhawks top prospect Ryan Greene may reject contract offer

Published April 15, 2024 at 7:36 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks future shines brightly with Connor Bedard leading the charge. However, there's uncertainty surrounding former second-round pick Ryan Greene, who may not join the team anytime soon.

Reports suggest Greene will likely return to Boston University for his junior season instead of signing his first professional contract to play alongside Bedard in Chicago.

According to sources, it's expected that Ryan Greene will opt to continue his development at BU for another season. Despite no official announcement, it seems Chicago will have to wait another year for Greene to join their ranks.

My sense is that #Blackhawks 2nd round pick Ryan Greene will return to BU for his junior season. No official announcement has been made but I think Chicago is going to have to wait one more season.

The 20-year-old center has shown consistency at BU, tallying 67 points in 78 games played over two seasons. With another year of experience, he's anticipated to seamlessly transition to the Blackhawks when the time comes.

There have been speculations that Greene, hailing from Newfoundland and Labrador and romantically linked to Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes' daughter Morgann, might have an interest in playing near his hometown.

Whether Greene signs with Chicago next year remains to be seen.
