Senators acquire Klinkhammer from Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks have traded minor-league forward Rob Klinkhammer to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
The Chicago Blackhawks have traded minor-league forward Rob Klinkhammer to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

In the event Klinkhammer plays five NHL regular-season games this season, Ottawa will transfer its own seventh-round pick in 2013 to Chicago.

The 25-year-old Klinkhammer debuted on Dec. 8, 2010 in a 5-3 win over Dallas, in his only NHL appearance to date. The undrafted free agent out of Lethbridge, AB, has spent the past four seasons playing for Norfolk and Rockford in the AHL, posting 17 goals and 46 points in 76 games last season for the Ice Hogs.
Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
