The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with defenceman Steve Montador on a four-year contract.

The Blackhawks acquired the negotiating rights to Montador from the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday for a seventh-round pick in either the 2012 or 2013 draft.

The 31-year-old Montador had a career-high 21 assists and 26 points and led the Sabres with a career-best plus-16 rating in 73 games last season.

A Vancouver native, Montador has 28 goals, 89 assists and 762 penalty minutes over parts of nine seasons with the Calgary Flames (2001-06), Florida Panthers (2005-08), Anaheim Ducks (2008-09), Boston Bruins (2009) and Sabres (2009-11).

Montador was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Friday.
