The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with forward Jamal Mayers on a one-year contract extension, and defenseman Johnny Oduya on a three-year contract extension.
Mayers, 37, registered six goals, nine assists and a team-high 91 penalty minutes in 81 regular-season tilts with the Blackhawks during the 2011-12 regular-season, his first with the organization, and appeared in three Stanley Cup Playoffs contests. The Toronto native ranked third on the club with 102 hits and finished second on the roster with a 56.1% winning percentage in the faceoff circle.
Oduya, 30, paced Blackhawks defensemen with three assists in six games during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and tallied five points (G, 4A) and a +3 plus/minus rating in 18 regular-season tilts with Chicago after being acquired on Feb. 27 from the Winnipeg Jets.
