According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman on Monday, the Blackhawks and Penguins were actively engaged in trade negotiations surrounding goaltender Matt Murray.
Friedman tweeted the Blackhawks were granted permission to negotiate a contract extension with Murray, but were unsuccessful. That brought the trade talk to an end.
Murray, 26, will become a restricted free agent this Friday.
Pittsburgh announced Saturday that the team has re-signed goaltender Tristan Jarry to a three-year contract and is now looking to move Murray. The veteran posted a .899 save percentage and 2.87 goals against average in 38 games with the Penguins last year.
