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.
