The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to a one-year contract with forward Brad Winchester.

Winchester made his professional debut in the 2003–04 American Hockey League season, playing for Edmonton’s farm affiliate, the Toronto Roadrunners. He moved with the team to Edmonton during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, where he tied for the team lead in goals and was six points behind Tony Salmelainen and Raffi Torres for the team scoring lead. He would make his debut with the Oilers during the 2005-2006 season, and has since bounced around St. Louis, Anaheim and San Jose. He currently has 68 points in 390 career NHL games.

He had nine goals and 18 assists last season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL last season.

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:
