Blackhawks get Saad back in trade with Blue Jackets

The Chicago Blackhawks have reportedly made another massive trade on Friday before the NHL Draft, sending Artemi Panarin to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Brandon Saad.

Blackhawks fans likely will welcome the return of Saad, who is still just 24 but a veteran of Chicago's Cup-winning teams in 2013 and 2015.

After two seasons skating with Patrick Kane, Artemi Panarin is moving on to Columbus.

We'll have more details as they come in on this breaking story.

Hjalmarsson, a fourth-round pick in the 2005 draft, had 23 goals and 120 assists in 623 career games with Chicago. The deal with the Coyotes brings back a promising young defenseman in the 24-year-old Murphy, who had two goals and a career-high 15 assists in 77 games with Arizona last season. Forsberg has played in 9 career National Hockey League games, recording a 4.07 goals against average and a.897 save percentage. "And his intensity and all-around game is second to none".

Hossa, who announced that he would miss this season because of an severe ongoing allergy, was one of the premier two-way wingers in the National Hockey League. The 25-year-old Russian had at least 30 goals and 40 assists in each of his first two seasons in the league. He has appeared in 72 career Stanley Cup Playoffs games between Columbus and Chicago, posting 16 goals and 21 assists.

"Niklas' contributions to the three Stanley Cup championship teams are well known but his dependability as a teammate, selfless attitude and the way he represented the Chicago Blackhawks on and off the ice are what made him such a beloved member of the organization", Bowman said in a release.

Saad was originally selected by Chicago in the second round (43 overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft. During the 2015-16 season, with the Calder Cup champion Monsters, he posted a ideal 9-0 record with a 1.34 GAA and.949 save percentage during the playoffs.

It's clear from their moves that the Coyotes will try to improve on five straight seasons without playoffs, though the additions of Hjalmarsson, Stepan and Raanta hardly move the needle much - the latter costing the club the seventh overall pick on Friday. He was a member of the 2012 World Junior championship team with his native Sweden. The 24-year-old finished with 24 goals and 29 assists in 82 games for Columbus last season.
