Hossa & Kopecky to the Blackhawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Noted by Pierre Lebrun at ESPN:

LeBrun (2 p.m. ET): The Chicago Blackhawks have signed star winger Marian Hossa to a 12-year whopper deal. Sources tell ESPN.com the deal is worth an average of $5.2 million a year.

more here later

added 2:21pm, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, T

he Chicago Blackhawks landed Marian Hossa today today with the free-agent push in Chicago once again coming from team president John McDonough, who was the driving force behind last year’s two prominent free-agent signings, Brian Campbell and Cristobal Huet, neither of whom provided good value for the money.

Hossa should be a much better buy - less money against the cap and a far better track record than either Campbell or Huet who, one year after the fact, are problems for the team going forward.

Release from the Chicago Blackhawks,
The Chicago Blackhawks have signed right wing Marian Hossa to a 12-year contract and center Tomas Kopecky to a two-year contract.

“To add Marian, an elite and world-class player, and Tomas, a Stanley Cup Champion, to our exciting young core reinforces our commitment to try to win the Stanley Cup,” Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon said.

note: Kopecky was added to the headline at 2:24pm.

Mirtle: Hossa a Hawk

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Kopecky a Hawk too, and this is interesting from Kevin Allen,

With Hossa signed with Chi 4 12 yrs, I have ‘Hawks at $34 mill for 8 players in 10-11 with no Kane, Toews, Keith

From Elliot Friedman’s Twitter account,

Pierre LeBrun (the real one) reports it is 12 years, $5.2 million per season for Hossa.

Via TSN, then James Mirtle.  No word on money or term.

And so, I’m thinking the rivalry with Chicago?  Just got a bit more intense.
