Pisani signs with hawks
One year one way for Pisani
added 5:14pm, from the Cult of Hockey,
The deal is one-year, one-way, a great deal for Pisani, and maybe for the Hawks as well. If Pisani is healthy, the Black Hawks are bringing on board a useful player, even though Pisani was arguably the worst Oilers forward at even strength last season.
The Hawks are the kings of even strength play, of course, so it’s not as if Pisani is needed in that role so much by the Hawks. Instead, it’s likely that Pisani will be most utilized in Chicago where he is best utilized, as a penalty killing ace.
When it comes to killing penalties, even an ailing Pisani has been the Oil’s best penalty killer by far the past two season.
