Chicago Blackhawks agree to terms with former Coyote Michal Rozsival

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have reached a contract agreement with defenceman Michal Rozsival on a year deal. Terms were not disclosed.

The 34-year-old Rozsival had a goal and 12 assists in 54 games for the Phoenix Coyotes last season and helped them reach the Western Conference finals. In 15 playoff games, he recorded 31 hits and blocked 28 shots.

A fourth-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1996, Rozsival has played in 756 career regular-season NHL games with the Penguins, Rangers and Coyotes and has totalled 64 goals and 196 assists. He has been in the playoff seven times with four goals and 12 assists.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
