The Chicago Blackhawks have signed two-time Stanley Cup Champion and 10-year National Hockey League center John Madden to a one-year contract.

“John is a proven winner and one of the premier defensive forwards in the game who also has the talent to contribute with timely offense as well,” Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon said. “Adding his experience to our team is an important piece to the puzzle.”

Madden, 36, has spent his entire career with the New Jersey Devils, helping the organization reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs in each of the last nine seasons. He has recorded 297 points (140G, 157A) in 712 career regular-season games and 41 points (20G, 21A) in 112 playoff contests which includes capturing the Stanley Cup in 2000 and 2003.

Last season, Madden registered 16 assists and 23 points in 76 regular-season games before tallying one assist in seven postseason tilts. He reached the 20-goal plateau for the second time in his career and posted a career-high 43 points during the 2007-08 campaign. Madden holds New Jersey’s franchise record with 17 shorthanded goals.

The Barrie, Ontario native captured the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2001, given annually to the National Hockey League’s best defensive forward, and was the runner-up for the award in 2003, 2004, and 2008. Madden was originally signed by New Jersey as an undrafted free agent in 1997 following a four-year college career at the University of Michigan where he won a National Championship in 1996.
