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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
