Rasmussen Re-ups With Chicago

Dennis Rasmussen showed good work in his first season with the Blackhawks. On Wednesday, he signed up for one more.

The Blackhawks and Rasmussen agreed to terms on a one-year deal on Wednesday afternoon.  The 25-year-old Rasmussen played in 44 games with the Blackhawks last season, recording four goals and five assists.

Rasmussen provided depth at center when the Blackhawks were without Marcus Kruger, who missed nearly four months with a broken wrist. In March, Rasmussen talked about everything he learned in his time with the Blackhawks, and how beneficial it would be entering training camp this fall.

“Of course, you feel more comfortable and know what to expect,” Rasmussen said at the time. “When you go back in the summer you know what to focus on and how the game is up here. Before, you didn’t know exactly. Of course it’ll make you feel more comfortable.”
