Chicago Blackhawks

Blackhawks Daily: Zadorov to Vancouver; Perry’s Statement



On one end it was a hockey day while on the other it was the end of a story that had lasted for over a week. The Chicago Blackhawks are indirectly involved in the first, but directly in the latter.

More on that in a moment.

The Vancouver Canucks took that fifth-round pick the Blackhawks sent for Anthony Beauvillier and shipped it off to Calgary, along with a third-round pick, to grab Nikita Zadorov. Now, how does this affect the Blackhawks outside of their fifth-round pick being used as a way to ply Zadaorov out of Calgary?

As noted, Kevin Weekes indicates that the Maple Leafs are looking for blue line help. Chicago can assist there–but are they willing to give more of its own blueline over to the kids?

That’s an article for another day.

Meanwhile, Corey Perry released his own statement about what occurred and in the era where statements and apologies are common place, it was powerful. It doesn’t absolve Perry of whatever transpired as it clearly had consequences but Perry not only apologized to everyone from the organization to his family, but owned his errors.

It also put an end to the rumors Blackhawks general manager Kyle Davidson called “disgusting.”

Whether or not this ends the news on it remains to be seen, but Perry’s statement sought forgiveness while promising his role in finding help.
