The Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday announced they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with 23-year-old forward Kyle Beach. Financial details were not released.

Beach had 16 goals, 26 points and 204 penalty minutes in 66 games last season with the Rockford IceHogs, the Blackhawks' American Hockey League affiliate.

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound forward has spent the past three full seasons with Rockford after spending the previous five seasons in the Western Hockey League.

The Blackhawks selected Beach with the 11th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
