Blackhawks reacquire forward Kris Versteeg from Panthers for Jimmy Hayes, Dylan Olsen

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired forwards Kris Versteeg and Philippe Lefebvre from the Florida Panthers for forward Jimmy Hayes and defenceman Dylan Olsen.

The trade was announced after Chicago's 5-4 shootout win over Phoenix on Thursday night.

The 27-year-old Versteeg, a member of the Blackhawks' 2010 Stanley Cup championship team, has two goals and five assists in 18 games this season with Florida.

Versteeg had 20 goals and 24 assists in 79 regular-season games with the Blackhawks in 2009-10, then added six goals and eight assists in 22 playoff games during the team's run to the Stanley Cup. He had a career-high 22 goals and 53 points with Chicago in 2008-09.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
