Krys picked up a pair of assists in AHL Rockford's 5-2 loss to Chicago on Sunday.
Krys has three helpers in his first three professional games. The 2016 second-round pick (46th overall) recently signed with Chicago following the completion of his junior season at Boston University. Following a dreadful freshman campaign, Krys has seen his stock rise the past two years. He has a chance to develop into an NHL regular down the road.
Krys signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Blackhawks on Monday.
Krys will report to AHL Rockford. The blueliner out of Boston University is locked in at a $925,000 AAV through 2021-22.
Krys picked up three assists in Boston University's 7-0 win over the University of Maine on Saturday.
With 11 points in 14 games in 2017-18, Krys has already matched his total from his entire freshman season. It took Krys quite a while to adjust to rigors of collegiate hockey but he is now skating on BU's top defensive pair alongside Nashville's 2016 first-round pick Dante Fabbro. Krys isn't a physical player and he is going to need to continue to make smart plays with the puck, something that has been an issue in the past, if he hopes to eventually develop into an NHL regular.
Krys scored with 25 seconds left in regulation to lead Boston University to a 3-2 win over Northeastern and a spot in the Hockey East semifinals on Saturday.
Krys has had a rough, rough freshman season for the Terriers, but perhaps the big goal on Saturday will get him trending in the right direction. Not only has he played poorly for BU, Krys was also the final cut for Team USA's World Junior team that won the gold medal despite the fact he was on the team last year. He has just five goals and 10 points in 36 games for the Terriers. All Krys (and the Blackhawks) can really do at this point is hit the reset button and hope for significant improvement next season.
