Blackhawks Trade Abbott, Carrick to Anaheim

Late in the afternoon on Wednesday, the Blackhawks acquired forward Kenton Helgesen and a seventh round pick in 2019 from Anaheim in exchange for IceHogs forwards Spencer Abbott and Sam Carrick.

Helgesen, who will turn 23 on March 19, had 13 points in 38 games with Utah of the ECHL this season.

Abbott, 28, appeared in one game with the Blackhawks this season. He had 35 points in 53 games with Rockford.

Carrick, 25, had 28 points in 57 games with Rockford.

In trading away Mark McNeill, Abbott and Carrick, the Blackhawks have wiped out the top three scorers on the IceHogs this season.

  1. Good moves, these are the extra picks we get from guys that are ufa that we can turn the 7th pick and another pick in 17 for a better pick (5th) in 18 a better draft.

  2. There just isn’t any legit talent in RFD right now. Outside of Pokka, and guys have shuffled in and out of the lineup I can’t think of anyone worth watching on that roster. The Hawks have made an organizational decision to stash talent in the NCAA and over seas. Shouldn’t we hear something on Shulnov shortly?

  3. Not really up to Shalunov. He’s an RFA in the KHL and his deal doesn’t expire until April 30th. He’s trying to get out of it and it’s really up to the team.
