Blackhawks Acquire Duclair, Trade Panik to Coyotes

Blackhawks Acquire Duclair, Trade Panik to Coyotes”

The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to get younger and faster, and they took a step toward that on Wednesday as they acquired Anthony Duclair in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes.

Panik is in the first year of a two-year, $5.6 million deal with an AAV of $2.8 million. He had one goal and four assists in 21 games with the AHL's Tucson Roadrunners this season.

The Pointe-Claire, Quebec-native certainly has the upside to be regular National Hockey League player and he'll get a chance to do that on a Chicago team that now sits just one point out of last place in the Pacific Division.

A day after scoring his first goal since October 21, Richard Panik is on the move.

Clendening, 25, signed a one-year contract with the Coyotes last offseason after spending his last season in NY with the Rangers.

Panik ended up playing 149 games with the Blackhawks after being acquired during the 2015-16 season in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs for Jeremy Morin. He carries a $1.2-million cap hit and will be a restricted free agent after this season, so it's a low-risk, high-reward move for Stan Bowman.

"Richard Panik is a big, skilled winger who is an excellent goal scorer", said John Chayka.

Canadian left wing Duclair scored 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games in his first full season (2014-15) but the former third-round pick has had his ceiling stunted with the Coyotes' poor performance over the past three years. "He will be a nice addition to our forward group". "He's a good skater and a reliable player with a lot of upside. His shooting percentage from areas he's scored in the past is just slightly down this year".

Other players are reportedly moving in this deal. After bursting on to the scene past year as a big, physical presence and a finisher around the net, he has been mostly passive and ineffective, with six goals and 10 assists in 37 games, a frequent healthy scratch of late. The Blackhawks will see the return of Clendening to their system after they selected him in the second-round fo the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
