David Rundblad and the Chicago Blackhawks have mutually agreed to a termination of his contract.

As a result, there will be no cap hit for the Blackhawks, which could help them try to sign pending unrestricted free agent Jimmy Vesey. "David indicated to us that he wanted to kind of get a fresh start, so I think he's looking to maybe pursue some other opportunities, whether it's in the NHL or maybe in Europe," GM Stan Bowman said earlier this month. He played in just nine games with Chicago last season and has 113 matches of NHL experience over his career.

The Chicago Blackhawks have placed David Rundblad on waivers with the purpose of buying out his contract.

Rundblad had one year left on his deal at $1.05 million. The buyout means Chicago will be charged with cap hits of $133,333 this season and $183,333 the year after that. "I think he’s looking to maybe pursue other opportunities, whether in the NHL or Europe, I can’t speak for him," Hawks GM Stan Bowman said. "He’s still a young guy and he wants to get back to playing a lot of hockey and that’s why he wanted to go to Europe mid-season. We were willing to honor that request. We’ll let him find a spot where he knows he’ll be a regular player every day."

David Rundblad will make his 2016 playoff debut on Thursday night.

It's an interesting roll of the dice by Hawks coach Joel Quenneville. Rundblad played just nine games in the NHL in 2015-16 and his last one came on Dec. 13. The 25-year-old finished the regular season in the AHL, so he has played hockey since December, but not at the NHL level. Michal Rozsival will be a healthy scratch.

The Chicago Blackhawks have loaned David Rundblad to the ZSC Lions of Switzerland’s National League A, and are receiving $905K in cap relief.

The Lycksele, Sweden, native has seen just nine games with Chicago this season and just 53 overall since being acquired in March of 2014. In fact, the former 17th overall pick in 2009's draft has played in 113 career games with Ottawa, Phoenix/Arizona, and Chicago with just 25 points and little else to his credit. He will ding Chicago's cap at just $100K through the end of the season, after which he'll become an unrestricted free agent.

David Rundblad has been placed on waivers by Chicago.

If he clears then he'll probably go to the minors. Rundblad has had a hard time cracking Chicago's lineup, while dressing in just nine games this season. The Blackhawks brought up Erik Gustafsson on Monday.

David Rundblad will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Dallas.

This will be Rundblad's fifth straight game in the stands, and he's seen just nine overall thus far. If you've played less than 10 games by the holiday break, you probably don't have any fantasy value.

David Rundblad and Brandon Mashinter will each be scratched from Sunday's match with San Jose.

Through 23 combined games, Rundblad and Mashinter have posted just three points, 15 PIMs, and 22 hits. Not much fantasy value there, unfortunately.

As expected, David Rundblad will play Tuesday night against Nashville.

He has been a healthy scratch for 17 straight games, but will get to play because of Trevor Daley's suspected head injury. Rundblad is projected to skate with Michal Rozsival in the third pairing.
