Blackhawks, Carcillo Agree to 2-year Extension
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to a two-year contract extension with forward Daniel Carcillo.

Terms were not disclosed by the team, which announced the deal Monday.

The 26-year-old Carcillo tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a game against Edmonton on Jan. 2 and won't play again this season. He had two goals, nine assists and 82 penalty minutes in 28 games in his first season with Chicago.

A third-round draft pick in 2003, Carcillo has 84 points (38G, 46A) and 1,068 penalty minutes in 310 regular-season games with Phoenix (2006-09), Philadelphia (2009-11) and the Blackhawks.

The King City, Ontario, native also has five goals, six assists and 69 penalty minutes in 33 playoff games.
