The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to move star defenseman Jamie Benn, according to sources close to the team.
The Hawks, who are looking for a solution to a top-heavy team, are trying to trade Benn.
They’re also looking to add another forward to the fold, sources told Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
The Blackhawks are hoping to add some depth to the roster to help offset the loss of Benn.
It’s possible that Chicago could try to move defenseman Alex Goligoski, sources said, though the 27-year-old is not expected to be moved.
The trade speculation comes a day after the Hawks traded defenseman Andrew Shaw to the Washington Capitals for a third-round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
It is believed the Hawks would like to bring back another defenseman, though.
Chicago is expected to have the right to match any offer from the Capitals, Friedman reported.
