Hossa, Blackhawks agree on deal

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed star winger Marian Hossa to a 12-year deal.

The deal is worth $62.8 million over the life of the contract -- an average of $5.233 million a year.

Hossa was one of two Detroit Red Wings to join the Blackhawks on Wednesday. The team also signed center Tomas Kopecky to a two-year contract that will pay him $1.2 million per season.

"To add Marian, an elite and world-class player, and Tomas, a Stanley Cup champion, to our exciting young core reinforces our commitment to try to win the Stanley Cup," Blackhawks general manager Dale Tallon said.

Hossa, who surprisingly took a one-year deal with the 2008 Stanley Cup champion Red Wings last summer, cashed in this time. The four-time All-Star and 11-year NHL veteran has played on a Stanley Cup runner-up the past two seasons. The Blackhawks are his fourth team since 2008.

The Blackhawks are going to have a tough time re-signing all of their youth soon.

As for Hossa, you can always go with a classic Ho-Ssa chant, or just boo him every time he touches the puck.

All that being said, the Blackhawks won't win a championship anytime soon now. He's a curse. ;)
