According to several reports including Peter Baugh and Scott Powers at The Athletic, the Chicago Blackhawks are signing Stanley Cup Champion, Jack Johnson to a one-year, $950K contract for the upcoming season.

The 35-year-old, was used as a support player on the Stanley Cup winning Colorado Avalanche.
The veteran defender amassed nine points (one goal, eight assists) and averaged 16:45 in 74 games with the Avalanche during the 2021–22 regular season
In 1,024 career NHL regular-season games with the Kings, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, and Avalanche, Johnson has scored 72 goals and 312 points.
With deals for players like Johnson, Colin Blackwell, Max Domi, Andreas Athanasiou, and Alex Stalock, the team has acquired quite a few veteran names that will fill out the roster but not move the needle very much.
It is a good opportunity for Johnson to continue his career. The third overall pick from 2005 has 1,024 regular season games to his name but just 30 playoff appearances before his stint in Colorado.
He will be a popular name at the deadline if Chicago's season goes as expected. Teams are always looking for depth defenceman to add for their playoff run.
