CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks have reached a contract agreement with defenseman 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 totaled 64 goals and 196 assists. He has been in the playoff seven times with four goals and 12 assists.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
