Forward Kyle Beach and defenseman Shawn Lalonde may have roster spots with the Chicago Blackhawks.

For now it appears Lalonde has an inside track on the Chicago blue line for the upcoming season.

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed Shawn Lalonde to a three-year/entry level deal.

Lalonde was the Blackhawks third round selection, 68th overall, in the 2008 Entry Draft. The Blackhawks were thrilled to take him as they thought he was a late first-round talent. The defenseman has 27 points in 28 games with the Belleville Bulls of the OHL this season. He is still at least a few years away from cracking the talented Blackhawks blueline.

Chicago Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon is happy with the team’s draft picks.

''Despite not having a second-round pick [traded to Ottawa in the Martin Havlat deal], we were happy to be able to get Shawn Lalonde, a talented kid whom we had rated as worthy of first-round recognition. We paid a price to get him [the Hawks' 72nd and 102nd picks]. But getting him [and Beach], we feel, is like getting two first-rounders. After that, we added [right wing] Ben Smith, who is a pretty good goal-scorer from Boston College. Then we also got a variety of different kinds of defensemen with toughness and speed and skill. This is something we feel we had to do to replenish our supply of defensemen. We're very happy with our additions today. We got four of the top 60 on our list.''

Chicago Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon considers 68th pick Shawn Lalonde to be a steal.

Hawks scouts had pegged the 6-foot-1-inch, 175-pound defenseman to go in the first round. When Lalonde was still available in the third round, the Blackhawks traded their 72nd and 102nd picks to the New York Islanders in order to get him. "Beach(Kyle Beach) and Lalonde were two guys we really liked. I like [Lalonde's] wheels, he can really skate. He has good puck skills and he's a good defensemen", said Tallon.
