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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
