Just a couple of days away from the NHL trade deadline and the Chicago Blackhawks are open for business.

General manager Stan Bowman struck early working out a deal with the Florida Panthers.

The Hawks receive Brett Connolly, Riley Stillman and Henrik Borgstrom plus a 7th Rd pick.

Going to Florida will be Lucas Carlsson and Lucas Wallmark. 

Bowman said he would offer to take on contracts and that’s exactly what he does by taking in Connolly while landing two young players in Stilam and Borgstrom.

More details to come.
