May 16th, 2015: Erik Gustafsson, defenseman, signs a 2-year, $1.335 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks

Initial Reaction: The Blackhawks add another Swede! They have great success with Swedish players. They need more defensive prospects.

Current Assessment: Gustafsson is in his second stint with the Blackhawks this season. He filled in nicely with the Blackhawks when Duncan Keith was injured. He has appeared in 27 games for the Rockford IceHogs and 7 games for the Blackhawks.

Grade: C
