The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with forward Brandon Bollig on a three-year contract extension.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports that the deal has an average annual value of $1.25 million per season.

Bollig tweeted, "Beyond excited to remain a Blackhawk for the next three years. Thank you all for the support."

The 27-year-old is earning $575,000 this season in the second and final year of his current deal, and had been eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

"We take a great amount of pride in having watched Brandon come up through our system and become a big part of our lineup on a daily basis", said Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman in a statement. "We are pleased to be able to come to this agreement with him, ensuring that he will remain a part of our organization. We look forward to seeing his continued development with the Blackhawks."

Bollig has six goals and six assists in 62 games this season for the Blackhawks. He was part of Chicago's Stanley Cup-winning squad from last season.
