Blackhawks Hockey

Blackhawks Were Sellers At Deadline

Have the Chicago Blackhawks (27-28-8) pulled the plug on their playoff hopes? The last-place team in the Central Division was a seller at Monday’s NHL trade deadline.

The San Jose Sharks (34-21-9), on the other hand, are second in the Pacific. They’ve bolstered their lineup ahead of Thursday’s matchup with the visiting Blackhawks. The Puck drops at 10:30 PM ET on WGN and NBCSN.

Oddsmakers have the Sharks as -155 moneyline favorites. The total is at 5.5.

Chicago did quite well at the deadline. They sent RW Ryan Hartman (eight goals, 17 assists in 53 games) to the Nashville Predators. The club attained a first-round pick.

The Hawks also shipped RW Tommy Wingels (seven goals, five assists in 57 games) to the Boston Bruins. They landed a fifth-round pick. They waived LW Lance Bouma (three goals, six assists).

Depth might be an issue this Thursday night.

The Sharks sent a conditional first-round pick to the Buffalo Sabres. This was part of the deal for top-line LW Evander Kane (20 goals, 20 assists). It was a small price to pay in the long run most likely. Kane is in a prolonged slump, scoring just five goals and an assist since January 1. He’ll also be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
