Chicago Blackhawks Sign Fernando Pisani

Tab BamfordSenior Writer IAugust 18, 2010

According to reports on Wednesday afternoon, the Chicago Blackhawks have added another veteran forward.

Fernando Pisani, who will turn 34 in December, reportedly signed a one-year, one-way deal with the Hawks for $500k. He played in only 40 games last year, scoring four goals and adding four assists. Pisani has dealt with colitis in the last few years, limiting his game action while a member of the Edmonton Oilers.

However, a forward that is listed at 6’1" and 205 pounds could make the competition for the third and fourth lines in September intense.

In 2005-06, Pisani’s best season, he played 80 games and scored 18 goals and 19 assists. That year, in 24 postseason games, he added 14 goals and four assists for the Oilers.
