Chicago has picked up minor-league defensemen David Rundblad and Mathieu Brisebois from Phoenix in exchange for a second-round pick at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
The higher profile of the two rearguards is Rundblad, who was the 17th overall selection at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. This marks the third time he’s been traded — he was flipped to Ottawa for a pick at the ’10 Draft (which the Blues turned into Vladimir Tarasenko), then flipped to Phoenix in the Kyle Turris deal.
Rundblad has one point in 12 games with the Coyotes this season and nine points in 50 career contests. Brisebois, meanwhile, is an undrafted free agent that signed with the Coyotes last season, and has four points in 28 games for AHL Portland.
At first glance, it appears the ‘Hawks are restocking their prospect pool. The team has flipped away a number of youngsters lately, including Dylan Olsen, Jimmy Hayes and Brandon Pirri — all of whom landed in Florida.
