Andrew Ladd is looking forward to seeing what unrestricted free agency has in store for him.

"Right now it's like you just want to get there. It seems like we've been waiting for quite some time now to get the next contract," Ladd said. "It's exciting to think about the opportunities, [to] see who is interested." He wants another chance at a Stanley Cup and he wants a situation that is good for his family.

Andrew Ladd doesn't sound optimistic that he will play for the Blackhawks next season.

"When we spoke after the season, they said it would be tough," he said. "The likelihood is they don't have the room to make it work." He added that the uncertainty is a "weird feeling, the waiting game. It's new to me. I honestly don't know what will happen." Ladd can become an unrestricted free agent next month.
Jun 1 - 6:04 PM

Andrew Ladd can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but he appears to be open to giving the Blackhawks a discount on his services.

"I'm at the point in my career where I can make decisions based on being in a good situation and at the end of the day, I don't think it's all about money for me," Ladd, said. "It's about being in a good place for my family and being on a team that's going to contend every year. You'd be crazy not to want to be a part of this group, this organization and we'll see what happens." He made $4.5 million this past season and he could demand much more than that on the open market.

Andrew Ladd registered two points in the Blackhawks’ 6-3 come-from-behind win against the Blues to force Game 7 on Saturday.

From down 3-1 in the series to now a win away from round two. Ladd scored the game’s first goal, then the Blues got three in a row. But that was it. Ladd also assisted on Marian Hossa’s empty-net goal at 17:49. He seemed to be more engaged (four shots on goal) in this game than any previous, which is obviously good news for Chicago. Artem Anisimov, Trevor van Riemsdyk, Dale Weise and Andrew Shaw got the other goals. Artemi Panarin and Jonathan Toews got two helpers apiece. The lesson? Don’t count out the Blackhawks.

Andrew Ladd currently leads the NHL playoffs with 21 hits after three games.

"It's just part of my game — that's the style," Ladd said. "It's a lot easier emotionally to get to that level in the playoffs, and I feel like if I'm skating and I'm on the puck, I'm usually on the body and that kind of takes care of itself. So if it's there, I'll take the hit. But I'm not going to go out of my way to make sure it happens." The St. Louis Blues have outhit the Blackhawks by a 122-85 margin in the series, but Ladd has been answering back physically.

Andrew Ladd is in Chicago with his wife to be there for the birth of their child.

Meanwhile the Blackhawks are set to play St. Louis in Game 1 at 9:30 p.m. ET. In the regular season, Ladd would almost certainly be ruled out for that game, but because it's the playoffs the door is still open to him traveling to St. Louis in time for the start of the contest. With that in mind, he's being called a game-time decision.
