Chicago Blackhawks Trade Scott Darling

Chicago Blackhawks have traded backup goalie Scott Darling to the Carolina Hurricanes for a third-round pick in this year’s draft. Darling is 28 years old and was 18-5-5 with a 2.38 goals against average and .924 save percentage this past season. Darling was set to become an unrestricted free agent, and it was unlikely the Blackhawks were going to keep him. The pick the Blackhawks acquired was originally that of the Ottawa Senators, so it will fall in their draft slot.

“We could count on Scott in any situation as he was always reliable,” Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. “We appreciate his contributions to the Blackhawks organization including a Stanley Cup championship team and we wish him well as he continues his career in Carolina.”
