The Chicago Blackhawks have been busy so far this trade season. They made two trades with the Florida Panthers that they did very well in. Instead of selling off the free agents on the team, they have only (so far) made trades that somewhat came out of nowhere. The latest one came today (deadline day) when they sent Matthew Highmore to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Adam Gaudette. This is a very good trade for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Chicago Blackhawks did very well in this trade with the Vancouver Canucks.
The Chicago Blackhawks saw some nice improvement from Matthew Highmore but he is a guy that has a ceiling as a fourth-liner. Gaudette isn’t too far off but he has shown the ability to chip in a fair amount of offense. Highmore feels like a guy who could be up and down from the NHL to AHL every year.
