Over the past week, rumblings emerged regarding Brendan Perlini seeking a trade out of Chicago. That request came to fruition today when the Blackhawks sent him to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for defenseman Alec Regula.

Over the past week, rumblings emerged regarding Brendan Perlini seeking a trade out of Chicago. That request came to fruition today when the Blackhawks sent him to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for defenseman Alec Regula.

Perlini only appeared in one game for the Blackhawks this season, which came back on October 12th against the Winnipeg Jets. The winger only logged 7:49 TOI in that contest before returning to the press box as a healthy scratch for every game since. He posted 12 goals and three assists in 46 games for the Hawks last season after coming over from the Arizona Coyotes along with Dylan Strome as part of the Nick Schmaltz trade. He was then signed to a one-year, $874,125 deal as a restricted free agent ahead of this season. The Blackhawks moving him comes as no surprise, given the reports swirling over the past week.

In return, Chicago is getting a 19-year-old defenseman, Alec Regula. The 6-foot-4, 203 lb, right-handed blueliner was drafted by the Red Wings in the third round (67th overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft. He is currently playing with the London Knights of the OHL, where he will remain after this move. Here is a look at his stats from his junior career, via Elite Prospects:

With the additions of Andrew Shaw, Ryan Carpenter, Zack Smith, Alexander Nylander, and Kirby Dach to the forward corps, the Blackhawks were not able to find a spot in the lineup for Perlini early on in the season. The move to Detroit will certainly provide him with more consistent opportunities.

[…] Perlini has already been moved via trade and Strome is on the fourth line. What once looked like a good trade for Bowman is beginning to look like a win for Arizona, as Schmaltz is Arizona’s leading scorer through 11 games with 11 points. […]

[…] out in Chicago. After signing a low-value one-year deal, Perlini barely saw playing time and was dealt to the Detroit Red Wings. In 14 games with the Red Wings, Perlini has only registered one assist. It seems he simply cannot […]
