Hjalmarsson signed a five-year extension with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, ESPN Chicago reports.
ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS
The deal is reportedly worth $4.1 million per year, and the Hawks now have most of their core players signed through the 2014-15 season. The main issue now is that both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are due big raises in the summer of 2015, as are Brandon Saad and Nick Leddy, although the latter two will both still be restricted free agents. Itís probably too early to worry about that at this point though, so for now just know that the Hawks basically look the same as last year heading into training camp.
