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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
