The Blackhawks have re-signed Malcolm Subban to a two-year extension worth $1.7 million ($850K AAV).

With Corey Crawford hitting free agency, the Blackhawks will go with a stable of young goalies left by Subban in 2021. He did not start a game with Chicago last season but is 30-23-7 with a 2.97 GAA and .899 SV% in 66 career starts with the Bruins and Golden Knights.

The Blackhawks have re-signed Dominik Kubalik to a two-year extension worth $7.4 million ($3.7M AAV).

After coming over from Switzerland, Kubalik made an immediate impact, scoring 30 goals with 16 assists (46 points) in 68 games for the Blackhawks. He had a strong postseason run as well, posting eight points (4G / 4A) in nine games. With his ELC expiring, Kubalik signs a two-year deal with a $3.7M AAV cap-hit--a terrific deal for Chicago.

The Blackhawks have acquired Brad Morrison from the Kings in exchange for Olli Maatta.

Morrison was originally a fourth-round pick of the Rangers in 2015 before turning pro in 2019 and signing with the Kings. In his first professional season, he had 20 points (10G / 10A) in 50 AHL games but spent all of 2020 in the ECHL, where he had six goals and 13 assists (19 points) in 17 games. This is more of a salary dump for Chicago--Maatta had two years left at $4.083M AAV but the Blackhawks will retain $750K per year.

This past season, he had 35 points (15G / 20A) in 38 games with Chicago (AHL) and will be a fringe NHLer with the Blackhawks.
