The Chicago Blackhawks and general manager Stan Bowman were pretty busy during the NHL trade deadline.
One of those trade deadline acquisitions, Riley Stillman, will be sticking around for awhile after he signed a three-year contract extension over the weekend.
The defenseman was set to become RFA this offseaon and preferred to just get things done so he could focus on his future with the Blackhawks.
After signing the deal that carries an AAV of $1.35million, it means that Nikita Zadorov is on his way out.
Zadorov will be RFA this offseason with arbitration. Bowman was trying to move him at the deadline but just couldn't get what he was looking for.
It might be even harder this offseason with the expansion draft coming.
