On Wednesday the Blackhawks traded forward Kyle Baun to Montreal for forward Andreas Martinsen.
Martinsen, 27, was never drafted. He made his NHL debut with Colorado during the 2015-16 season, appearing in 55 games. He scored seven goals with 11 assists over 110 regular season games for the Avs before he was traded to Montreal for Sven Andrighetto at the deadline last year. He failed to produce a point in nine appearances with the Habs.
Martinsen is listed at 6-3 and 229 pounds and has one year remaining on his current contract with a $675k cap hit.
Baun, 25, signed with the Blackhawks as a college free agent in March of 2015. He appeared in five games for the Blackhawks during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons, but spent all of last season in Rockford. He has a $625k cap hit for the 2017-18 season.
