CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired forward Antoine Vermette from the Arizona Coyotes, the team announced Saturday.
In exchange the Blackhawks will send defenseman Klas Dahlbeck and a first-round draft pick to Arizona.
Vermette, 32, has recorded 430 points in 815 career NHL games over 11 season with Ottawa, Columbus and Arizona.
The move comes after the team learned it would be without star forward Patrick Kane for at least the next 10 weeks.
The Blackhawks lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning Friday, 4-0. The team’s next game is Monday, when they will host the Carolina Hurricanes.
