Hjalmarsson inks five-year, $20.5M extension

The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson on a five-year contract extension worth $20.5 million.

Hjalmarsson, 26, registered two goals and eight assists for 10 points, and a plus-15 rating, in 46 games with the Blackhawks last season.

He picked up five assists and was sixth in the league with a postseason career-best +10 plus/minus rating in 23 playoff games en route to the 2013 Stanley Cup title, his second championship after winning his first in 2010 with Chicago.

The Eksjo, Sweden, was originally drafted by Chicago in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Hjalmarsson has accumulated nine goals and 47 assists for 56 points, and a plus-48 rating in 306 career regular-season games.
