Katsuki Yamazaki (30) earned his domestic FA option today with eight years of service time on the active roster.

"I did not think I would become the kind of player that would be able to earn the option.  I am happy," said Yamazaki.

When asked what he planned to do with the option, he replied, "I have not thought about it at all.  I will think about it during the off-season. ... The Hawks have allowed me to compete at a high level."
