During the trade deadline, the Blackhawks traded away a number of players. Their moves honestly put them in a great position and I cannot argue with any of them, so today let’s look at how the other teams’ new guys are doing thus far.
Mattias Janmark is in Vegas. Carl Soderberg is in Colorado. Matthew Highmore is in Vancouver, and Lucas Carlsson and Lucas Wallmark are both in Florida. There are a lot of different players all over the place now. None of these players were huge pieces in the success of the Chicago Blackhawks during the past few seasons, but maybe they will have bright futures with their new teams.
The Blackhawks players the team traded away this past season:
Mattias Janmark –
VEGAS: The Vegas Golden Knights definitely overplayed for Janmark. Chicago got a little bit more than what Buffalo got for Taylor Hall. Janmark has a goal and two assists through ten games with Vegas. His ice time has shockingly increased to over 17 minutes on average. That is something I truly did not expect to see.
Vegas is poised to make a deep playoff run this year, that is if they can get past Colorado in round two. These two teams have long been the top dogs in their division and Janmark is going to be a part of it all.
Janmark is a special kind of player that can shine in any role he is put in. With Vegas, he has been playing on the top line with Stephenson and Stone. Vegas is more of a physical team than Chicago and that is something that will benefit Janmark as he was physical all year with Chicago.
