The Blackhawks have added forward Daniel Carcillo to their training camp roster, the team announced Friday

Carcillo split last season between the Kings and Rangers. He was invited to Penguins camp on a tryout basis this fall, but was released on Thursday.

After playing in Chicago from 2011 to 2013, Carcillo was traded to the Kings for a conditional draft pick prior to last season. He was then traded in midseason to the Rangers for a conditional draft pick. 

Carcillo, 29, has 44 goals and 48 assists in his eight-year NHL career. Known primarily as a fighter, he has amassed a total of 1,179 career penalty minutes. He led the league in penalty minutes in his first two full seasons in the NHL.
