Blackhawks acquire Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann from Canadiens
CHICAGO – Stan Bowman has been a busy man lately.
A day after bringing Andrew Ladd back to Chicago for Marko Dano and a first round pick, the Blackhawks picked up two forwards and a veteran defenseman.
The first trade of the day sent Rob Scuderi to the L.A. Kings for Christian Ehrhoff to help shore up the back end.
Hours later, Phillip Danault and a second round pick were dealt to Montreal for Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann.
At 27 and 31-years-old respectively, Weise and Fleischmann add a bit more of a punch to the Blackhawks scoring threat.
Weise is second on the Canadiens with 108 hits, while netting 14 goals and 12 assists in 56 games.
Fleischmann is not far off Weise’s pace, tallying ten goals and ten assists in 57 games.
The move marks the third trade in the past 48 hours for the Blackhawks, who next hit the ice on Sunday when they host the league-leading Washington Capitals.
