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

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
