Blackhawks acquire Regin, Bouchard from Islanders
The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard from New York Islanders for a fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

The New York Islanders traded forwards Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

The Islanders had signed each to a one-year contract last summer. Regin had two goals and seven points in 44 games, but had not dressed since last Friday and was scratched for New York's 4-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

Bouchard scored four goals and had nine points in 28 games before being waived. He was playing with the Islanders' American Hockey League team, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Bouchard will report to the Blackhawks' AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs. In addition, forward Brandon Pirri, who has 11 points in 28 games with Chicago this season, was assigned to Rockford.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
