The Chicago Blackhawks are looking for some goaltender help, and that help is much more needed now.
The Blackhawks and general manager Stan Bowman announced on Wednesday that they've traded goalie Jean-Francois Berube to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
In return the Hawks acquired 27 year old forward Jordan Schroeder.
Berube appeared in 13 games for the Blackhawks last year and registered a 3.78 goals against average and .894 save percentage, not exactly numbers the Hawks will be sad about losing.
Drafted in 2009 by the Vancouver Canucks, Schroeder has bounced around the NHL moving from Vancouver to Minnesota before finding himself in Columbus last year.
In 21 games with the Blue Jackets he registered one goal and one assist and put up 36 points in 48 games for the Blue Jackets AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Monsters.
