The Chicago Blackhawks' front office continues to be active since winning the Stanley Cup. Today, the team announced that they have resigned forward Michal Handzus and defenseman Michal Rozsival. Handzus, 36, signed a one year deal reportedly worth around $1 million. Rozsival, 34, signed a two year deal, with financial terms still to be released. Both players had an important role for the Blackhawks last season.
Although they were able to retain two of their free agents, the Blackhawks lost two members of their Stanley Cup winning team on Friday. Goaltender Ray Emery signed a one year, $1.65 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, while forward Viktor Stalberg signed a four year, $12 million contract with the Nashville Predators. Both players were impactful in their time with Chicago, but will be replaced before next season.Blackhawks, Chicago, Chicago Blackhawks, EMERY, FREE AGENTS, HANDZUS, Hockey, NHL, ROZSIVAL, STALBERG
