The Atlanta Hawks have signed forward Jameel Warrick to a one-year, $3.75 million contract extension, the team announced on Monday.
Warrick, 27, is coming off a solid campaign in his rookie season, playing in 60 games for Atlanta and ranking third among Hawks rookies with 5.4 points per game.
He finished with a career-high 14 goals and 19 assists in 64 games.
Warwick, a six-foot-three, 190-pound native of Chicago, Illinois, made his NHL debut on March 29, 2016 against the New York Islanders.
He scored the winning goal with 4:33 left in the first period.
The Hawks have a lot of needs for a right wing, but the team is currently in a bind with a glut of draft picks.
The team acquired left wing Brandon Pirri on June 24, 2019 in exchange for a second-round pick and forwards Jaden Schwartz and Alex Nylander.
The club is still waiting to see if it can acquire defenseman Jake Dotchin and forwards Nikita Zadorov and Justin Falk in the trade.
The Hawks will also have to make a decision on the future of left wing Kevin Hayes, who is out with an ankle injury.
The team’s first round pick, second-rounder, fourth-rounder and fifth-rounder are also all pending unrestricted free agents.
