The Chicago Blackhawks are getting Calder Trophy winner Connor Bedard some help this offseason. They've already signed scrappy forward Tyler Bertuzzi to a four-year contract, while also coming to terms with two-time veteran Stanley Cup winning defenseman Alec Martinez. 

And now, add another pair of veterans to the roster, including one that originally began his career in Chicago. The Blackhawks have signed forward Teuvo Teravainen along with goaltender Laurent Brossoit, marking the latest meaningful additions to what was one of the worst records in the NHL last season. 

Teravainen signed for three years with an AAV of $5.4 million, while Brossoit signed a two-year pact worth $3.3 million a season.

Teravainen, who was drafted by the Blackhawks 18th overall in 2012, helped them to the 2015 Stanley Cup with 10 points in 18 postseason games. He's coming off a  5-year, $27 million contract extension with the Hurricanes, who acquired him from Chicago in 2016. Last season, he scored 25 goals with 28 assists in what would be his final year with Carolina.

Meanwhile, Brossoit is coming off another solid season between the pipes in what was his second go-around with the Winnipeg Jets, earning a 15-5-2 record with a solid 2.00 goals against average and .927 save percentage and three shutouts.
