Blackhawks Send Dylan Sikura to Vegas, Brandon Pirri Returns to Chicago
The Chicago Blackhawks have traded forward Dylan Sikura to the Las Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for former Blackhawk Brandon Pirri.
The Chicago Blackhawks have made their first trade of the 2020-21 offseason. The deal sends Dylan Sikura to the Las Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for Brandon Pirri.
Pirri was once touted as a future second-line center behind Jonathan Toews in the Blackhawks organization after the team drafted him 59th overall in 2009. The Hawks traded him to the Florida Panthers during the 2013-14 season in exchange for third-round and fifth-round draft picks. After his stint in Florida, Pirri played nine games for the Ducks in 2015-16 and spent the 2016-17 season with the New York Rangers before becoming a member of the Vegas Golden Knights.
Sikura, who is heading to Vegas, appeared in a total of 47 games in a Blackhawks sweater while only finding the back of the net once.
