Description: Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson scored Chicago's only goal in the, 2-1, shootout victory over the Penguins on Sunday.
Insight: Chicago won a faceoff in the offensive zone early in the second period, and Hjalmarsson released a nasty, knuckling slap shot that beat Marc-Andre Fleury. Hjalmarsson, however, isn't fantasy relevant being that was just his second goal of the season.

Description: The Chicago Blackhawks will match the San Jose Sharks' offer sheet to Niklas Hjalmarsson, signing him to a four-year, $14 million contract. TSN
Insight: Signing Hjalmarsson to an offer sheet means that one of Brian Campbell, Patrick Sharp, or Antti Niemi could be traded by the Hawks as a salary dump. The Hawks will push the hardest to trade Campbell, who has the largest contract of the group but will be the most difficult to trade.
