Also via TSN, Kris Versteeg has signed with the Chicago Blackhaws, thus clearing up the last of the potential problem spots after Chicago’s administrative error.

The Chicago Blackhawks have put a good part of their restricted free-agent woes behind them, as the club agreed to a three-year contract worth more than $9 million with forward Kris Versteeg.

“Kris’ tremendous rookie season was a big reason the team was able to go as far as it did,” Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon said in a statement. “He is part of a core of young players that is going to make this franchise successful for a long time.”

Whew. While the price tag was pretty hefty, at least it saves the Hawks some PR embarrassment.

    True but what does it mean for the Hawks cap space over next few years?
