Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms on a two-year contract with reigning Hobey Baker Award winner Drew LeBlanc on Friday.

The 24-year-old made his NHL debut in April, participating in a pair of games after putting together a 13-goal, 37-assist campaign in his senior season with St. Cloud State. LeBlanc left the Huskies after totaling 42 goals and 147 points in 171 contests.

Chicago also agreed to a pair of one-year contracts, with defensemen Theo Peckham and Michael Kostka.

Peckham only played a combined eight games between Edmonton and Oklahoma City in the AHL in 2012-13, but has logged 160 games of NHL experience, all with the Oilers, since 2007. The 25-year-old Ontario native has collected four goals and 13 assists in that time.

Kostka tallied eight assists in 35 games for the Maple Leafs a season ago, his first NHL action following five-plus seasons in the AHL for several clubs.
