Rozsival Returns To the Blackhawks

This morning, the Chicago Blackhawks agreed to a one year deal with returning NHL veteran Michal Rozsival.  Rozsival comes back to wear the Indian head crest for a fourth year.  Last year he played in 65 games, with 13 points (1G, 12A).

Every fan realized how much his 17+ minutes a game were missed when he went down with a season-ending injury in the playoffs last year.  He will provide depth for a team that learned their lesson on not having enough veteran defensemen to eat minutes when needed.  He probably won't see the 65 games he played in the regular season last year, nor will he be as heavily depended upon when/if the Blackhawks make the playoffs this year.

What he brings though is 15 years of NHL experience while being a two-time Stanley Cup champion.  Something that any team, whether or not he plays every night or not, can provide tutelage to the younger players on the team.

Welcome back Rozsy!
