April 8th, 2021: Chicago traded Lucas Wallmark and Lucas Carlsson to the Florida Panthers for Brett Connolly, Henrik Borgstrom, Riley Stillman, and a 2021 7th round pick

This is the newest trade on the list. Honestly, I wanted to try and avoid putting new deals from the past season out there because I wanted to avoid any bias on it being more recent, but at the same time, this deal is just too good to not mention.

The Blackhawks trade Wallmark and Carlsson two players that did not have a future with this team and managed to add three players that can impact the roster and a seventh-round draft pick.

Riley Stillman was impressive during his limited showing with the Blackhawks, Borgstrom is one of the team’s top prospects now and Connolly is someone that might have a bigger salary but can still be a competitive depth player.

"Blackhawks sign Riley Stillman to three-year contract extension"

If Stan Bowman can keep making trades like that the Blackhawks will be in a good position for years to come.
