Blackhawks trade Daniel Carcillo to Kings

168446105

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Daniel Carcillo in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a conditional 2015 NHL Draft pick, according to Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times. The trade will save the Blackhawks $825,000 in cap space and free up a roster spot, according to Lazerus.

 

Carcillo had just two goals and one assist in 23 games during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. He started the season on Chicago's top line with Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews, but was forced to miss 15 consecutive games due to a leg injury suffered during the season opener. Even when Carcillo was healthy enough to return to the lineup, he was relegated to being a role player.

    Fortunately for Carcillo, he was able to have his day with the Stanley Cup before being shipped off to Los Angeles where he no doubt hopes to play larger role as an aggressive, agitating forward. As for the Blackhawks, general manager Stan Bowman said last Friday that the Blackhawks likely won't be making any more offseason signings.
