The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday announced it will use compliance buyouts on defenseman Steve Montador
and left wing Rostislav Olesz
The window for compliance buyouts opened at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and lasts until 5 p.m. ET on July 4. Both players still must clear waivers for the buyouts to take place. If a player is claimed, the Blackhawks would save a compliance buyout, per the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
