Report: Cam Barker traded to Minnesota

By Jeffrey Bartl
facebooktwitterreddit is reporting  the Blackhawks have traded Cam Barker to the Minnesota Wild for d-man Kim Johnsson and Nick Leddy, who was Minnesota’s 2009 first-round pick.

This obvious cost-cutting measure is the first of what we expect to be a couple more moves before the trade deadline and this coming off-season. Barker is in the first year of a 3-year, $9.25 million-deal he signed this past off-season when someone in the organization fudged up presenting qualifying offers.

More to come later.
