Blackhawks Sign Ryan Potulny

3

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed Ryan Potulny to a one-year two-way contract. The deal will pay Potulny $500,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 if he's in the AHL. This must have been a frustrating summer for the former Oiler. After scoring 15-17-32 in 64 games and representing his country in the World Hockey Championships Potulny must have felt like he'd finally established himself in the NHL, and that a one-way deal would surely be available from someone. Instead, he took a haircut on last year's NHL salary, and got the same AHL wage as he did a year ago. For the Oilers, it's hard to understand how one-way deals for J.F. Jacques and Steve MacIntyre make more sense than a one-way deal for Potulny. Oh well. I wish Potulny nothing but the best with Hawks.
