Chicago, Ill.-The Chicago Blackhawks have signed center Ryan Potulny (poh-TUHL-nee) to a one-year contract.

Potulny, 26, shared third on the Edmonton Oilers with a career high 15 goals and ranked sixth with a career best 32 points in 64 regular-season games last season. He also appeared in 14 contests with the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons in 2009-10, collecting eight points (3G, 5A) and eight penalty minutes.

The Grand Forks, North Dakota, native has registered 22 goals, 49 points and 54 penalty minutes in 116 career National Hockey League games over parts of five seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers (2005-08) and Edmonton (2008-10). Philadelphia’s sixth choice, 87th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Potulny has also notched 143 points (74G, 69A) and 141 penalty minutes in 172 career AHL tilts with the Philadelphia Phantoms (2006-08) and Springfield (2008-2010). He ended the longest contest in the 74-year history of the AHL when he potted a goal at the 2:58 of the fifth overtime (142:58) while skating with the Phantoms in Game 4 of the East Division Semifinal on April 24, 2008.

Prior to turning pro, Potulny spent parts of three seasons at the University of Minnesota (WCHA) from 2003 to 2006, collecting 118 points (68G, 50A) in 100 games. He was a finalist for the 2006 Hobey Baker Award.
