Blackhawks Trade Philippe Paradis to Tampa

The Chicago Blackhawks traded forward Philippe Paradis to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday evening for the rights to defenseman Kirill Gotovets.

Gotovets was a seventh round pick by the Bolts in the 2009 Draft, and just completed his third season at Cornell. He has 15 total points in 80 career games at Cornell.

Paradis was acquired by the Blackhawks with Viktor Stalberg and Chris DiDomenico in the trade that sent Kris Versteeg to the Maple Leafs in 2010. He was the 27th overall selection in the 2009 Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes, and has now been traded three times before reaching the NHL. He had 25 points in 98 games as a member of the IceHogs.

This deal opens a roster spot; before the trade, the Blackhawks were at the NHL-limit of 50 contracts.

    This is a sign.
    49 contracts.
    In case noone takes Olez/Monty for free on waivers, we can trade with a pick & prospect.

    A former 7th round pick, with talent but a long shot to make the NHL. Funny thing was I was wondering if Philippe Paradis was still even in the Hawks system. Guess he was in Rockford. He was part of the Versteeg deal w Toronto
