The Stamford, Conn., native previously registered 84 points (47G, 37A) over three seasons at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Haggerty also participated in the United States National Team Development Program from 2009-11.

Raanta, 26, posted a 7-4-1 record, including one shutout, a .936 save percentage and 1.89 goals-against average in 14 games for the Blackhawks last season.
