The Blackhawks have been busy on NHL Trade Deadline day, reportedly sending forward Mattias Janmark to the Vegas Golden Knights. The Blackhawks are also sending a fifth-round pick to Vegas, but in return, receive Vegas’ second- and third-round picks.

Janmark had a nice start to his 2021 season with the Blackhawks. In 41 games, Janmark scored ten goals and added nine assists. Janmark also quickly became a member of the Jeremy Colliton Trust Circle, playing big minutes, while playing both power play and penalty kill for the Hawks. That said, with having his best offensive season since 2017-18, Janmark was a prime trade deadline candidate.

As the details trade continue to be released, the San Jose Sharks appear to be acquiring a 5th round pick in this deal. They will function as a cap buffer for the Golden Knights, who have cap struggles to navigate. The Sharks are also sending a minor league player to Vegas in the deal.

Stan Bowman has done an excellent job at the deadline, acquiring two draft picks and a high-upside player for two players that likely weren’t going to be in Chicago after the 2021 season. Overall, the deadline has proved to be good to the Blackhawks, helping the team in the future without hurting the current roster much.
