The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Dylan Sikura to the Vegas Golden Knights.
The National Hockey League season finally came to an end last night. One week shy of being a calendar year since the start, the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Dallas Stars in game six to win their first Cup in 14 years. Well, a few hours before the game, the Chicago Blackhawks decided to make a trade to prepare for next year. They traded Dylan Sikura to the Vegas Golden Knights to reacquire Brandon Pirri. It is a trade that might make a difference in the short term and look good for the Hawks.
This trade is a bit comical because it is a swap of two players that the Blackhawks kept in the dog house for a long time. Dylan Sikura was never able to stay in the lineup under Jeremy Colliton and some much worse players were getting ice over him. The team isn’t as deep as it was a few years ago so it was always surprising that he wasn’t able to stick to the lineup regularly.
