Report: Pisani signs with Hawks
Report: Pisani signs with Hawks
Fernando Pisani apparently is on the move.

TSN is reporting the 33-year-old forward has signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Chicago Blackhawks that will pay him $500,000.

An eighth-round pick (No. 195) of the Oilers in 1996, Pisani had just 4 goals and 4 assists in 40 games last season.

Pisani is remembered for his remarkable performance during the 2006 postseason, when he helped the Oilers reach the Stanley Cup Final. Pisani had 14 goals -- one of which came shorthanded in overtime of Game 5 against the Carolina Hurricanes -- and 4 assists in 24 playoff games.

In 402 NHL games -- all with Edmonton -- Pisani has 80 goals, 73 assists and 190 penalty minutes.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
