Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks have agreed to terms with Lance Bouma on a one-year deal.

Bouma, 27, is a big forward (6-foot-2 / 208 lbs) that likes to play a physical game, but has some offence to go along with it. Since registering 34 points (16G / 18A) in 2014-15, Bouma has just 14 points (5G / 9A) in 105 games over the last two seasons. Bouma has averaged 2.6 hits per game over the last four seasons and will bring size and physicality to the Blackhawks’ fourth line.

The Flames placed Lance Bouma on waivers for the purpose of a buyout.

Bouma, 27, was set to enter his final season of a three-year deal that carried a $2.2M cap hit. Bouma’s buyout will save the Flames $1.53M against the cap in 2017-18. The hard-hitting winger had just seven points (3G / 4A) in 61 gams last season nd just 67 points (27G / 40A) in 304 career NHL games.

Bouma (upper-body) remains day-to-day.

Bouma missed the final two games of the regular season and missed Monday’s practice as well. His absence suggests that he won’t be available for game 1, but the Flames have an abundance of young forwards on the roster right now, so they’ll have no problem putting a quality product on the ice.
