On Monday morning the Chicago Blackhawks announced the club has signed veteran forward Mattias Janmark to a one-year deal. The contract has a $2.25M cap hit.
Janmark, who will turn 28 on Dec. 8, scored six goals with 15 assists in 62 regular season games with the Dallas Stars last year. He added one goal and seven assists with 38 penalty minutes in 26 playoff games as the Stars advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

Janmark's xG impact is a definite plus and he can help on the penalty kill. But he really cannot give you any offense of any type, he turns the puck over, and he takes more penalties than he draws. Is CHI tanking? Maybe? pic.twitter.com/uCqSl832Gv
He was originally a third round pick (#79 overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft by Detroit. Janmark is the 14th member of the 2013 NHL Draft to become part of the Blackhawks organization; Nikita Zadorov was also selected in 2013. None of the Blackhawks’ own picks from 2013 are still with the club.
