Chicago,  IL  (SportsNetwork.com) - The  Chicago Blackhawks have signed center 
Brad Richards. 

Richards  earned $9  million last  season in  the midst  of a  lucrative nine- 
year  deal he  signed with  the New  York  Rangers in  July of  2011. For  the 
upcoming  season,  however, the  34-year-old pivot will  receive a reported $2 
million with a no-movement clause included. 

Last  season, he  recorded 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 regular-season tilts, 
then  added  five goals  and 12  points to  the Blueshirts'  march to the 2014 
Stanley Cup Finals. 

Richards,  a Cup winner in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, has participated 
in  982 regular-season  games and accumulated 276 goals with 591 assists while 
suiting up for the Bolts, Dallas Stars and Rangers. 

He  has  added 33 scores  and 57 helpers  in 118 postseason appearances, which 
includes a Conn Smythe Trophy earned during the 2004 playoffs. 

Earlier on Tuesday, the Blackhawks agreed to terms on a one-year contract with 
forward Peter Regin. 

Regin,  28,  played in 61 games  for the Islanders and Blackhawks last season, 
notching four goals and seven assists. In 239 NHL games with New York, Chicago 
and Ottawa, the native of Denmark has posted 23 goals and 66 points. 

Chicago  also agreed  to terms  on  one-year contracts  with goaltender  Scott 
Darling and forwards Cody Bass and Pierre-Cedric Labrie.
