The Chicago Blackhawks are signing veteran defenseman Jack Johnson to a one-year contract, sources told Peter Baugh and Scott Powers of The Athletic.

Chicago is reportedly expected to announce the deal Wednesday.

The pact will be worth $950,000, according to Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago.

Johnson won the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche last season, recording a goal and eight assists over 74 regular-season games. He played another 13 contests during the playoffs without registering a point.

The 35-year-old has played 1,024 games over his 16-year career with the Los Angeles Kings, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, and Avalanche.
