The Blackhawks have added some extra depth up front this morning, acquiring winger Rem Pitlick from Pittsburgh in exchange for a conditional 2026 seventh-round pick.

The Blackhawks have now acquired their second forward of the day. With Connor Bedard injured, they must bring in as many reinforcement as possible, the team is bringing in a Stanley Cup Champion.


In a timely move, the Chicago Blackhawks have claimed Zach Sanford, likely considering their injury troubles.



In his recent stint with the Coyotes, Sanford played in 11 games, including the latest against the New York Islanders. Mostly on the fourth line, he contributed two points, eight blocked shots, and four hits. Although he averaged 9 minutes and 15 seconds of ice time per game this season, he didn't play on any special teams.

At 29, Sanford has played in 316 NHL games and was part of the St. Louis Blues' Stanley Cup-winning team. He's known for scoring, with a career-best of 16 goals and 30 points. Despite his achievements, he has changed teams in recent years.

Sanford has a manageable $800k cap hit.
