Before Monday’s NHL trade deadline, the Chicago Blackhawks made a minor deal. And it’s intriguing.
Chicago traded defenseman Dennis Robertson to the Carolina Hurricanes for goaltender Drew MacIntyre.
First, the Blackhawks got Robertson from Carolina earlier this year in the deal that sent Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom to the Canes.
Second, the Hawks had two goaltenders – Mike Leighton and Mark Visentin – in Rockford before signing Mac Carruth for the rest of the season on Sunday.
MacIntyre, 32, was originally a fourth round pick in 2001 by Detroit but has appeared in only six NHL games. He has an 11-13-1 record with an .890 save percentage this season with Charlotte in the AHL.
Chicago is reportedly still trying to dump Bryan Bickell.
