The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms with defenceman Michal Rozsival on a one-year contract on Tuesday.
Rozsival recorded one goal and 13 points and a +8 plus/minus rating in 54 regular-season games with the Phoenix Coyotes last season. The Vlasim, Czech Republic, native helped Phoenix reach the 2012 Western Conference Final for the first time in franchise history, posting 31 hits and 28 blocked shots in 15 games.
The 34-year-old blueliner has appeared in 756 career regular-season National Hockey League games, tallying 260 points and 589 PIM in 12 seasons with the Penguins, New York Rangers and Coyotes. He has reached the Stanley Cup playoffs seven times, notching 14 points in 52 games.
Rozsival has twice represented his country at the World Championship, including a gold medal run at the 2010 World Championship in Cologne where he collected two assists in nine games.
