Knox tenure with Bears ends – not a happy day

Dale Weise signs four-deal deal with Flyers

Dale Weise signs four-deal deal with Flyers

Dale Weise has moved on from the Blackhawks, and signed a four-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The deal is reportedly worth $9.4 million total, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, which comes out to be an annual cap hit of $2.35 million.

Weise struggled to hold down a roster spot in Chicago after being acquired at the trade deadline from the Montreal Canadiens.

He registered just one assist in 15 regular-season games with the Blackhawks, and was a healthy scratch in three of their seven playoff contests. 

Prior to his brief stint with the Blackhawks, the 27-year-old Weise put up 14 goals and 12 assists in 56 games last season with the Canadiens.

Blackhawks sign Sam Carrick, Pierre Cedric-Labrie to one-year deals

Blackhawks sign Sam Carrick, Pierre Cedric-Labrie to one-year deals

The Blackhawks announced Friday that they have made a couple minor-league moves.

Forwards Sam Carrick and Pierre-Cedric Labrie agreed to one-year deals with the team, and are likely to report to the Rockford IceHogs of the American League.

Carrick, 24, scored 16 goals and 18 assists in 52 games last season with the AHL's Toronto Marlies. Across four seasons with the Marlies, Carrick has accumulated 100 points (41 goals and 59 assists) in 192 games, including six goals and 11 assists in 36 career Calder Cup playoff games.

He was a fifth-round pick (No. 144 overall) in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Labrie, 30, has spent the last two season in Rockford, where he scored a career-high 20 goals and added 14 assists in 66 games last season. The Blackhawks originally signed Labrie, who was an undrafted free agent, in 2014 before re-signing him to a one-year contract last June.

White Sox promote Carlos Sanchez, place Matt Davidson on disabled list

White Sox promote Carlos Sanchez, place Matt Davidson on disabled list

The White Sox promoted Carlos Sanchez on Friday and placed Matt Davidson on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right foot.

The starting second baseman in 2015, Sanchez has appeared in 11 games for the White Sox this season. He’s hitting .154 with one RBI in 29 plate appearances. Sanchez was hitting .258/.313/.413 at Triple-A Charlotte with six homers and 24 RBIs.

Davidson became the most recent White Sox casualty when he broke a bone in his foot running the bases in his season debut on Thursday. The third baseman singled in a run and scored but injured himself somewhere in between.

Acquired in a trade for Addison Reed in December 2013, Davidson was in the midst of his best season at Triple-A. He was named an International League All-Star earlier this week and was promoted to the big leagues on Thursday.
