The Blackhawks still have on more player going to arbitration, defenceman Jim Vandermeer on July 28th. Chicago has until 48 hours after the Vandermeer arbitration result to decide on whether or not they will accept Calder's award or not.

Coming off a career offensive year on the ice, Chicago Blackhawks forward Kyle Calder also scored off it thanks to an NHL arbitrator, who awarded him a one-year, $2.95-million contract for the 2006-07 campaign.

Calder led Chicago in goals (26) and points (59) –- both of which also were personal bests for the 27-year–old -- while earning $1.3 million last season. The Blackhawks have until 48 hours after their final arbitration hearing (Jim Vandermeer on July 28th) to decide whether they will accept the arbitrator's verdict.

If the team chooses to reject the decision, the fifth-round pick (130th overall) in the 1997 draft immediately becomes an unrestricted free agent.

CHICAGO (Ticker) - Kyle Calder apparently will be rewarded for his career season.

According to a report on the Chicago Blackhawks' official web site Wednesday, the team has accepted an arbitrator's decision to award Calder a one-year, $2.95 million contract.

Calder, who made $1.31 million last season, had his case heard on July 24, three days before an arbitrator made his ruling. Had Chicago declined to accept the decision, Calder would have become an unrestricted free agent.

The 27-year-old recorded career bests of 26 goals and 59 points in 2005-06, when he led the Blackhawks in tallies, assists (33), points and game-winning goals (six).

A fifth-round pick in 1997, Calder has appeared in 359 games over six seasons with Chicago, recording 85 goals, 125 assists and 184 penalty minutes.
