The Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks made Wednesday’s first trade, with the Bruins sending Maxime Sauve to Chicago in exchange for Rob Flick.
Combined, the pair have exactly one game of NHL experience (Sauve got one with the B’s last season).
Sauve is a 23-year-old center that has spent the last four seasons with AHL Providence. He has 10G-13A-23PTS in 52 games this year, and was Boston’s second-round pick (47th overall) at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
Flick, 22, has spent this season with AHL Rockford, racking up five points and 97 penalty minutes in 51 games. He was Chicago’s fourth-round (120th overall) pick at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
