The Chicago Blackhawks acquired a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft and a third-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forwards Bryan Bickell and Teuvo Teravainen.
“I would like to thank both Bryan and Teuvo for their contributions to the Blackhawks organization,” said General Manager Stan Bowman. “Both players were drafted by our organization and developed to play important roles on Stanley Cup championship teams. We wish them the best as they continue their careers with Carolina.”
Bickell scored 65 goals and added 70 assists in 384 games with the Blackhawks, spanning nine seasons. A member of the 2013 and 2015 championship teams, he was the Blackhawks' second-round selection (41st overall) in the 2004 Draft.
Teravainen has collected 17 goals and 27 assists in 115 games with the Blackhawks. He was the team's first selection (18th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft and a member of the team’s 2015 Stanley Cup championship.
