The Chicago Blackhawks announced today they have agreed to terms with defenseman David Rundblad on a two-year extension, which runs through the end of the 2016-17 National Hockey League season.
Rundblad, 24, tallied 14 points (3G, 11A) in 49 games with the Blackhawks last season. His career-best plus-17 rating ranked third on the team. He also competed in five postseason games on the way to his first Stanley Cup championship.
The Lycksele, Sweden, native has recorded 23 points (4G, 19A) in 104 career NHL games over four seasons with the Ottawa Senators (2011-12), Arizona Coyotes (2011-14) and Blackhawks (2013-14). Rundblad was originally acquired via trade on March 4, 2014.
Rundblad was selected in the first round (17th overall) of the 2009 NHL Draft by the St. Louis Blues.
