CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks have signed Brad Richards to a one-year deal, bolstering their group of centers with another proven scorer.

Richards had 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 games for the New York Rangers last season, and then had 12 points in the playoffs to help his team make it to the Stanley Cup finals. The 34-year-old Richards has 276 goals and 591 assists in 982 career games for Tampa Bay, Dallas and New York.

The Blackhawks have been looking for a second-line center behind Jonathan Toews for a couple years, and Richards' resume makes him a favorite to fill that role. The move also allows Chicago to bring prospect Teuvo Teravainen along more slowly.

Chicago also announced a one-year deal with center Peter Regin on Tuesday.
