The Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday announced that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with 23-year-old defenseman Ryan Stanton. Terms of the deal were not released.

Stanton made his NHL debut against the St. Louis Blues on April 27, 2013, and had a plus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in 17:05 of ice time.

The 6-foot-2, 196 pound blueliner spent the majority of 2012-13 playing for the Rockford IceHogs, the Blackhawks' American Hockey League affiliate, where he had a career-high 22 assists and 25 points in 73 games.

Originally signed by Chicago as a free agent on March 12, 2010, Stanton has nine goals and 60 points in 224 games with the IceHogs.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
