The Blackhawks have re-signed Jamal Mayers to a one year, 600,000 deal.

Despite being a healthy scratch during the end of the playoff series against the Coyotes, Mayers proved to be a leader who added physical presence to the team and could be relied on during the penalty kill.

However, he may not see an enormous amount of playing time since the Blackhawks are now very well-stocked on their fourth line. But his high level physicality will always be appreciated, especially against aggressive opponents.
