In the 2009 regular season, Bolland ranked 148th in the league in pool scoring with 19 goals and 28 assists in 81 games. It was a career year for him, as he finally managed to jump into the line-up on a full-time basis. His deal looks to be banking on a 20-goal season going forward, which is a pretty good bet after the year he put in. He is someone to look for in your pool draft at a reasonable spot.

The signing of Bolland has now put the team up to 12 players signed at a rate of just over $39 million for the coming season, with plenty of free agents to sort out this year. With some of the UFAs on the list, the Blackhawks will be likely heading back to their AHL affiliate to help fill their roster up to the maximum of 23 players.
