Chicago goaltender Cristobal Huet has signed a one-year deal with HC Fribourg-Gotteron of the Swiss National League A, and the Blackhawks have agreed to loan his services, according to RDS. One issue that still remains, however, is determining the date Huet can be re-assigned. Chicago is working on that now.

The move would clear cap space for the Blackhawks, who signed veteran netminder Marty Turco to a one-year, $1.3 million contract earlier this month.

In 48 games with Chicago last season, Huet posted a 26-14-4 record with a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage.

He has two years left on a deal with Chicago that pays him an average of $5.625 million per season.

Huet played four seasons in the Swiss league before joining the Los Angeles Kings in 2002.
