The Chicago Blackhawks just made another move in free agency, adding former Maple Leafs defenseman TJ Brodie.

The Blackhawks do not figure to be a playoff team next season after finishing 31st this year, but they have made some significant improvements in free agency today. Their latest move came as they signed TJ Brodie to a two-year deal.

Brodie will come with a 3.75 million dollar cap hit. That may seem like a lot, but the Blackhawks essentially have no cap concerns considering the fact that they will not be competitive for a playoff spot for several years.
#Blackhawks agree to terms with TJ Brodie: 2 years x $3.75 million.

Brodie got into 78 games with the Leafs last season, scoring 1 goal and 26 points in the process. However, it was clear that he has taken a step back due to his age. the 34-year-old will likely continue to decline, but if the Blackhawks use him in a more limited role, he can still be an effective player.
The Chicago Blackhawks have signed TJ Brodie to a two-year deal with an AAV of $3.75M. Brodie had a down year in the last season, but still should be capable to play in TOP4. We live in a league where Edmundson or Lyubushkin got a better contract than Brodie.

This is the latest move for the Blackhawks, but it won't be the last. Be sure to tune in to see how the rest of the summer plays out for Kyle Davidson and the Hawks.
