Former Chicago Blackhawks player Brent Sopel is selling his Hinsdale, Illinois, home.

A former Chicago Blackhawks defenseman recently placed his Hinsdale, Illinois, mansion on the market, following a release from the hockey team.

Brent Sopel, a 34-year-old NHL player, was a member of the Blackhawks from 2007 until 2010, when the team traded him to Atlanta. Now that he is packing up to move to Russia to play for a team based in Serbia, he has put his Illinois-area home on the market.

The mansion is on the market for $1.6 million and has six bedrooms. The 3,912-square-foot house was paid for through a bank trust by Sopel in November of 2008 for $1.05 million, according to the Chicago Tribune, and has a total of 16 rooms.

The 9-year-old home also features a master suite with two walk-in closets, a sun deck and a new kitchen with Carrara marble installed.

A four-car garage is also included on the 0.7 acre lot the house sits on.

Sopel won a Stanley Cup Championship with the Blackhawks in the 2009-10 season and currently plays for the Metallurg Novokuznetsk, a Russian hockey league. Sopel also had stints with the Atlanta Thrashers and Montreal Canadiens after leaving the Blackhawks.
