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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
