Expect the Blackhawks to announce a 2-year extension for Erik Gustafsson some time this week. Total value in the neighbourhood of $2.2 – $2.5M. Gustafsson is RFA making $650K this season.

Don’t ask us why, but according to Mike Kelly (of TSN and the NHL Network) the Hawks apparently think enough of Gustafsson to bring him back with an AAV between $1.1-1.25M per.
