Coyotes get D Niklas Hjalmarsson in trade with Blackhawks

Vera Richards | 24 June, 2017, 00:57

The 30-year-old Hjalmarsson had spent his entire 10-year career with Chicago, where he had 23 goals and 120 assists in 623 career games along with the franchise record for most playoff games played by a Blackhawks defenceman at 128.

The Chicago Blackhawks have traded forward Artemi Panarin along with forward Tyler Motte and a 2017 sixth-round draft pick in exchange for forward Brandon Saad, goaltender Anton Forsberg and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick. The winger should have no problem recording a fourth straight 50-plus point season as he teams back up with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.

As if all that activity wasn't enough, the Hawks also turned around and traded defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson to the Arizona Coyotes for two younger players. But they were swept by Nashville in the opening series, managing just three goals in 13 periods in an embarrassing performance for a team with three championships since 2010.

Turns out he was just getting started. And while Saad is not in the same category of defensive player, he does play a 200-foot game and had a ton of success in Chicago, where he won two Stanley Cups.

Saad, 24, joined the Blue Jackets via trade with the Blackhawks in June 2015 and Forsberg, 24, was selected by Columbus in the seventh round, 188th overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft.

Meanwhile, French driver Romain Grosjean was slowest and ranted constantly about brake trouble in his Haas vehicle . However with the session all but over the youngster made a mistake at Turn 1 and went sideways into the barriers.

But the departure of Hjalmarsson and Panarin creates two more holes that need to be filled.

Hossa had 26 goals and 19 assists in 73 games last season. Arizona has been busy under Andrew Barroway - who became the club's sole owner earlier this month - dealing No. 1 goalie Mike Smith to Calgary last week while parting ways with well-regarded head coach Dave Tippett on Thursday night. In his rookie season following his jump from the KHL to the NHL, Panarin scored 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games en route to the 2016 Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the league's top rookie.

"His rookie year will always rank among the best in franchise history and his exciting style of play provided many memorable moments for our fans during his two seasons as a member of the team", Bowman said. Chicago missed Saad a lot and they're very happy to have the two-time Stanley Cup champion back.

Hjalmarsson's contract includes a cap hit of $4.1 million. Forsberg has played in 9 career National Hockey League games, recording a 4.07 goals against average and a.897 save percentage.
