Success - Article sent! close

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman was confident he could get his three restricted free agent signed.

He still has two to go after Sunday, when left wing Viktor Stalberg agreed to a two-year contract worth $1.75 million.

The 25-year-old Stalberg, who had 12 goals and 12 assists in 77 games last season with 102 hits, will have a cap hit of $875,000.

Bowman still has about $6.2 million under the salary cap to get restricted free agent's Chris Campoli and Michael Frolik signed.

Campoli has filed for arbitration. Stalberg also was headed to arbitration before Sunday's agreement.

Campoli and Frolik might be proving to be more difficult to sign than the Hawks imagined. Bowman is expected to provide an update on the negotiations Monday when he meets the media at the conclusion of prospects camp.

Campoli earned $1.4 million last season and could be influenced by the contract the Hawks gave free-agent defenseman Steve Montador, who will make $2.75 million in 2011-12.

Frolik is believed to be asking for $2.3 million to $2.5 million.

The Hawks now have 22 players under contract.
