Arbitration won't be needed to decide the salary of winger Viktor Stalberg. The Blackhawks announced they re-signed Stalberg to a two-year deal on Sunday.

A source told the Sun-Times the deal is worth a total of $1.75 million. Stalberg will have an average cap hit of $875,000. Last year, it was $850,000.

Stalberg and the Hawks were scheduled to meet with an arbitrator July 20 after he filed for player-elected arbitration earlier this month.

Stalberg, 25, had 12 goals,12 assists and 43 penalty minutes in 77 games last season with the Hawks, his first with the team and first full year in the NHL. He was acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs last summer in the Kris Versteeg trade. Versteeg is now a member of the Florida Panthers.

The Hawks are still negotiating with winger Michael Frolik and defenseman Chris Campoli, who are both restricted free agents. Campoli has an arbitration hearing on Aug. 3.
