The Blackhawks have made a trade tonight!!!
The Blackhawks have acquired Kris Versteeg and Phillippe Lefebvre for Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen. Versteeg was a fan favorite and member of the 2010 Stanley Cup Champions, but he was part of the post Stanley Cup purge by Stan Bowman.
When the Blackhawks placed Michal Handzus on IR and Jimmy Hayes wasn’t the player coming back to Chicago one had to wonder what was the issue and now we know.
You knew Dale Tallon would be making a lot of changes to his roster, and his first move is sending Versteeg back to Chicago. In 18 game this season, Versteeg has 2 goals and 5 assists. Stan Bowman said this about having Versteeg back in Chicago.
Bowman on Versteeg: We can use him in a lot of different places… Having that depth will be critical in the playoffs.

The first 2010 Cup winner has returned back home, and Versteeg is supposed to be in Chicago tomorrow for practice.
