The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms with center Rob Flick on the three-year deal on Tuesday. Terms of the contract remain unknown. Chicago drafted the center in the fourth round with the No. 120 overall pick in 2010. Flick spent last year playing in the American Hockey League for the Rockford IceHogs, where he tallied seven goals, six assists and 91 penalty minutes in 45 regular-season games.
Flick will add youth and size to the Blackhawks' front line. The 6-2, 205 lbs. center is just 21 years old and a native of London, Ontario.
The Blackhawaks will have to make decisions on five restricted free agents later this offseason, most notably Brandon Bollig and Ben Smith.
