Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks traded away two members from their 2013 Stanley Cup championship run on Sunday, but kept another from leaving the fold by inking forward Bryan Bickell to a four-year contract.

Bickell, who had nine goals and 17 points in 23 games for Chicago in this year's playoffs, signed a deal worth a reported $16 million to remain with the Blackhawks.

The 27-year-old Bickell, a second-round pick by Chicago in 2004, has 40 goals and 50 assists over 220 career regular-season games with the Blackhawks. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5.

Earlier at Sunday's NHL Entry Draft, the Blackhawks, who won their second title in four years after beating Boston in Game 6 of the Cup Finals on Monday, traded forwards Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik away in separate deals. Bolland, of course, recorded the winning score late in regulation during the clinching Game 6 victory in Boston.

Chicago received a third and fifth-round pick from Winnipeg for Frolik, while Bolland landed two picks from Toronto (51st and 117th overall) in Sunday's draft and a fourth-round selection in 2014.
