Blackhawks deal Panarin and Hjalmarsson, get Saad back

Chicago additionally sent forward Tyler Motte and its sixth-round pick (170th overall) in the 2017 draft to Columbus in the deal and received goaltender Anton Forsberg and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Blue Jackets.

The Blackhawks are trading away the 25-year-old Panarin after two incredibly successful seasons with the team.

That same day, the Blackhawks also completed a trade with the Arizona Coyotes, parting with defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson in return for defenseman Connor Murphy and forward Laurent Dauphin.

Unfortunately for the Blackhawks, he comes at the expense of Panarin, who put up back-to-back 30-goal seasons and recorded 151 points in 162 National Hockey League games. However, it looks like the Blackhawks are going to try to trade his contract to a team willing to absorb it, according to Chris Nichols. He was an important part of two of their Stanley Cup runs. Dauphin, 22, has played in 32 career games with the Coyotes over the last two seasons, scoring three goals and one assist.

"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. 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.

Hossa had 26 goals and 19 assists in 73 games last season. Panarin has two years remaining on his deal, with a $6 million annual cap hit. Murphy, 24, had two goals and a career-high 15 assists in 77 games with Arizona last season.
