The Chicago Blackhawks announced today they have agreed to terms with forward Dennis Rasmussen on a one-year contract, which runs through the end of the 2015-16 National Hockey League season.
Rasmussen, 25, recorded 27 points (13G, 14A) and a +9 plus/minus rating in 73 regular-season games with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League last year in his North American debut; he added five shots on goal in seven Calder Cup contests. The Vasteras, Sweden, native posted one goal in three 2014 preseason tilts with the Blackhawks. Rasmussen previously registered 85 points (40G, 45A) in 149 career Swedish Hockey Leagues games with Växjö from 2011 to 2014. He has also appeared for Sweden in international competition, helping Sweden to a bronze medal at the 2014 World Championships and the 2010 World Junior Championships.
