Gustafsson was the Blackhawks’ final remaining RFA for the summer. He received a qualifying offer from the team back in late June, and now he’s signed for the upcoming season.

The 25-year-old recently completed a two-year deal with the Blackhawks that he signed as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He had a $667,500 cap hit on that deal, although his actual income was a bit lower given he was on a two-way deal that paid just a $70,000 salary in the AHL.

Oilers sign Connor McDavid to 8-year, $100 million extension

  Oilers sign Connor McDavid to 8-year, $100 million extension Oilers captain Connor McDavid has signed an eight-year, $100 million contract extension, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday. When the deal kicks in beginning with the 2018–19 season, McDavid will have—by far—the biggest cap hit in the NHL at $12.5 million. Initial reports indicated that the average annual value of McDavid’s extension would be $13.25 million but TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports he “wasn't comfortable with the number and may have insisted on lowering it.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Erik Gustafsson has agreed to a one - year contract extension, the team announced Friday. Gustafsson , who spent the 2016-17 season with the Rockford IceHogs, is regarded as one of the top defensemen in the team’s system

Erik Gustafsson had his doubts that this day would ever come, that he’d find himself not only back in the NHL, but signing a two- year , one -way contract extension with the Blackhawks . After a season-and-a-half in Rockford, Gustafsson appeared to be an afterthought.

During the 2015-16 season, Gustafsson appeared in 41 games with the Blackhawks and showed some NHL ability. He recorded 13 assists at even strength, and posted a 53.7 percent 5-on-5 Corsi. The Hawks’ 5-on-5 Corsi that year was 4.6 percent higher with him on the ice than on the bench.

Last season with the Rockford IceHogs, Gustafsson continued to put up solid offensive numbers with five goals and a team-leading 25 assists in 68 games. In addition to more assists than anyone on the IceHogs, he also led the team in shots on goal (185) at a solid average of 2.7 per game.

That could make Gustafsson a potential option for the Hawks’ blue line next season, although he’ll be competing with Michal Kempny, Gustav Forsling, and Jordan Oesterle for playing time on the left side. It’s too bad he’s not a righty, as the Hawks’ only options there behind Connor Murphy and Brent Seabrook are Ville Pokka, Jan Rutta, Michal Rozsival, and a host of prospects.
