It’s not the blockbuster deal that we saw from Chicago yesterday but it’s trade nonetheless as TSN tells us.
The club has dealt forward Colin Fraser to the Edmonton Oilers for a sixth round pick (151st overall) in this year’s NHL Entry Draft.
It’s just a minor move, but it’s the Blackhawks sending another player from their Cup-winning team out of town although you could hardly say that this move was salary-motivated. Fraser is a restricted free agent and made just $700,000 last season. As for the Oilers, they add a player who’s the definition of a fourth liner. In other words, they add a guy who fits in perfectly with most of the rest of the roster.
