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.
