The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have agreed to terms with defenseman Ryan Stanton on a one-year contract.

Stanton was originally signed by Chicago as an undrafted free agent on March 12, 2010. During the 2011-2012 season, Stanton scored 3 goals with 14 assists and was minus-four in 76 games, while his 130 penalty minutes were second-most on the IceHogs behind forward Brandon Bollig, who recorded 161. This past season, he registered a career-high 22 assists and 25 points in 73 regular-season games with the IceHogs.

While not actually playing a single game with the Blackhawks in the playoffs, and only registering one game played during the regular season, Stanton was apart of the 2012-2013 Stanley Cup winning Chicago squad.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
