Veteran defenseman Michal Rozsival, Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman's final signing of the summer, is the second Hawks player to sign overseas during the lockout.

Rozsival will apparently be joining Plzen of the Czech Extraliga, according to Czech media reports on Tuesday. Winger Michael Frolik was the first Hawks player to sign in Europe, signing with Chomutov of the Czech Extraliga last week.

Like Frolik, Rozsival is from the Czech Republic. He's from Vlasim in the Czech Republic, which is about two hours away from Plzen.

General manager Stan Bowman added another depth defenseman to the Blackhawks roster on Tuesday signing veteran Michal Rozsival to a one-year deal worth a reported $2 million.
