Goalie Scott Darling and the Chicago Blackhawks agreed to a two-year contract, the Blackhawks announced Sunday.

The contract runs through the end of the 2016-17 season.

Chicago recalled Darling from Rockford of the American Hockey League earlier Sunday. In a corresponding move, the Blackhawks sent down Antti Raanta, who allowed two goals on 16 shots in 27:41 after relieving starter Corey Crawford in a 6-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Darling is 5-2-0 with a 1.97 goals-against average and .937 save percentage with the Blackhawks this season. He made his NHL debut Oct. 26.

Darling, 26, is a native of Lemont, Ill., a Chicago suburb. He is 27-14-2 in 53 AHL games.
