In Chicago Kostka won the position battle for one of the last remaining d-man spots, forcing Chicago to put Stanton on waivers.
Stanton is 6’2 196. He’s 24 and had 3 goals and 22 assist last year in Rockford of the AHL. He also chimed in with 126 PIM’s. In March 2010, the Blackhawks signed Stanton to a three-year entry-level contract.
Stanton’s first professional goal was scored in a 4-3 Rockford IceHogs loss on February 23, 2011 against the Chicago Wolves. (Yes the Canucks farm team at the time)
