Sopel signs with Chicago

Brent Sopel has agreed to terms with the Chicago Blackhawks on a one-year contract reported to be worth $1.5 million. The defenseman made the trip with the Red Wings to Toronto, but didn't dress for the game when the deal was done, leaving Detroit with five defensemen.
Sopel's departure puts Derek Meech in a good position to make the Red Wings roster. Meech is a prospect who would need to clear waivers if he's assigned to Grand Rapids.
