The Chicago Blackhawks and general manager Stan Bowman announced a trade on Saturday. 

The team has shipped off forward Brandon Saad and defenseman Dennis Gilbert. 

Bowman shipped the duo off to the Colorado Avalanche. 

In return the Hawks will get gritty tough defensemen Nikita Zadorov and Anton Lindholm.

Hawks return $1million on Saad's salary. 

More to come.
