Talent Analysis

Haggerty showed scoring ability in both his final season of college hockey and as a rookie at the AHL level in 2014-15. He has an accurate shot and a very quick release. Not overly impressive in terms of his technical skills or skating ability, Haggerty relies on sound instincts and plays a smart game.


Haggerty is in his first season with the Chicago organization after being acquired by the Blackhawks from the Rangers in exchange for goalie Antti Raanta in June 2015. In the third year of his entry-level contract, he will start the season with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs. Haggerty's skill set suggests some value as a potential third or fourth line forward, with the potential to chip in offensively.
