While some might feel that the sky is falling, credit needs to be given where it’s deserved. And what Semyon Varlamov has done against the Hawks this season is certainly worthy of respect – and concern with the prospect of a first round series against the Avs on the horizon.
Once again, the Blackhawks put plenty of shots on net against Semyon Varlamov and the Colorado Avalanche. And, again, Varlamov was up to the challenge as the Hawks dropped a game in Denver and fell to third place in the Central Division.
On Tuesday morning, Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville appeared on the McNeil and Spiegel Show on 670 The Score and indicated that the team’s top prospect, Teuvo Teräväinen, would join the NHL club later this season.
GM Stan Bowman also spoke about Teräväinen joining the team before the Stadium Series game at Soldier Field.
On Monday afternoon, the Blackhawks announced that the team has agreed on a three-year, entry-level contract with defenseman Dillon Fournier.
Fournier, a second round pick in the 2012 Draft, had 32 points in 36 games in the QMJHL before an injury cut his season short. He was the first overall selection in the 2010 QMJHL Entry Draft.
Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews scored in the same game for the 51st time in their careers, and those two goals were enough as the Hawks edged the Sabres in Kane’s home town.
With questions about their offensive consistency creeping up after a quiet trade deadline, the Blackhawks answered the bell with a dominant win over the visiting Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
The 2014 NHL trade deadline has come and gone, and the Western Conference was incredibly busy. In total, nine different picks in the 2014 NHL Draft were traded away by the top ten teams in the Western Conference, while the Blackhawks, Kings, Ducks and Coyotes added picks in this summer’s draft.
Here’s how teams in the playoff chase helped – or hurt – their chances before the deadline.
Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline saw a lot of crazy action. Tomas Vanek and Matt Moulson were traded again, and David Legwand is (finally) leaving Nashville. Also, Jaroslav Halak didn’t spend much time in Buffalo and Marian Gaborik is headed to Los Angeles.
Let’s take a look at all of the action from a busy Wednesday in the NHL.

The first trade of Deadline Day breaks the ice in the big way! The Tampa Bay Lightning have reportedly traded captain Martin St. Louis to the New York Rangers for their captain, Ryan Callahan, with a first and second round picks.
Re: the picks involved – the first round pick going to Tampa is in 2015. The 2nd round pick in 2014 going to Tampa becomes a 1st if the Rangers get to the Eastern Conference Final. If Callahan re-signs in Tampa, the Rangers receive Tampa’s 2nd round pick in 2015 in exchange for the Rangers’ 7th in 2015.
With the trade deadline less than 24 hours away, the Blackhawks dropped an important divisional game against the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 at the United Center on Tuesday night.
