Blackhawks extend Michal Rozsival and Jordin Tootoo 1 more year
I’m not sure why they decided to do this today but just announced that we are giving extension. Both guys are now under contract thru the 18 season.
Michal Rozsival is 38 years old and only has 1 goal and 1 assist in 51 games. Tootoo has not yet recorded a point in his 36 games he played this year.
Just reading that the reason for these signings are filling the requirements the Blackhawks need for the upcoming Vegas expansion draft. One of the main criteria that each NHL team need to meet for this upcoming draft is that you need to expose at least one defensemen and two forwards to the draft. They must be under contract and have played at least 40 NHL games. Before these signings they didn’t have it covered.
