Blackhawks agree to terms on 1-year deal with G Raanta

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with goaltender Antti Raanta on a one-year contract.

The 24-year-old Raanta was 21-10-11 with five shutouts, a 1.85 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage in 45 games last season, leading Assat Pori to the SM-liiga championship in Finland. He was 4-3 record with a 2.09 GAA and a .928 save percentage for Finland in the 2013 IIHF World Championship.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
