Jason Dickinson expressed his desire for a more extended contract with the Chicago Blackhawks after finalizing a 2-year deal today, valued at $4.5 million per season.

While content with the agreement, Dickinson admitted:

"I'm not going to lie, I would've liked a few more years because I see what's down the line. I see the potential, I see where things can go, and I would love to be a part of that."

The contract extension gives stability to the 28-year-old forward, who was once thought of as a possible buyout candidate two summers ago.


Dickinson has comfortably settled into his role in Chicago and, if he keeps going at this rate, could hit 25 goals this season.


This extension follows the Blackhawks re-signing forward Nick Foligno to a two-year, $9 million contract, showing the team's dedication to keeping both players beyond this year's NHL trade deadline.
