Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Friday that they are bringing back two members of their 2013 Stanley Cup championship team, agreeing to terms with unrestricted free agents Michal Rozsival and Michal Handzus.

Rozsival will be back on a two-year deal, after the 34-year-old defenseman tallied 12 assists in 27 games during his first season in Chicago. He also appeared in 23 playoff games for the NHL's best team.

Handzus was acquired from San Jose on April 1. The 14-year veteran had one goal in 11 regular-season tilts, but added three goals and eight assists in 23 playoff games during the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup run. He signed a one-year pact to return to the club for whom he first suited up in 2006-07.

Rozsival has recorded 64 goals and 208 assists over a 12-year career with the Penguins, Rangers, Coyotes and Blackhawks.

The 36-year-old Handzus has played in 950 career games and has accumulated 181 goals and 286 assists while spending time with St. Louis, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Jose and Chicago.
