Report: David Rundblad Off Blackhawks Books

According to, the Blackhawks and David Rundblad have mutually agreed to part ways.

It was initially reported that the Blackhawks had placed Rundblad on buyout waivers. By mutually agreeing to terminate the contract, the Hawks save money during the upcoming season – and, in the case of a buyout, next year as well. 

Rundblad, 25, was originally selected by the St. Louis Blues with the 17th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft. His rights were then traded to Ottawa for a draft pick (used on Vladimir Tarasenko). Ottawa then traded Rundblad and a second round pick to Phoenix for Kyle Turris.

The Blackhawks traded a second round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft (used on Christian Dvorak) for Rundblad and Mathieu Brisebois on March 4, 2014.

  1. One of the Hawks defensive stalwarts from Game 7 against the Blues….. Looking back that was simply bizarre.

    Lets Go Hawks!

  2. Rundblad, Bickell. and now Rozival….more like the “Cat Came Back the very Next Day” than “So long, Farewell”

  3. Mining Man, you hit it on the head. Hearing Rosy was signed to for translation purposes for Kempney. Make Rosy a fricken coach rather than signing him as a player if that need existed.
