Blackhawks agree to 1-year contract with forward Brad Winchester

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to a one-year contract with forward Brad Winchester.

Winchester has 37 goals and 31 assists over 390 NHL games with Edmonton, Dallas, St. Louis, Anaheim and San Jose. He had nine goals and 18 assists last season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League, a Nashville Predators affiliate.

The Blackhawks announced the move Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
