Amidst a growing injury crisis for the Blackhawks, recent developments suggest they've sought relief from the waiver wire.

The latest addition to their roster is defenseman Jaycob Megna, claimed off waivers from the Seattle Kraken.


Standing tall at 6-6 and weighing 220 pounds, he's a ‘HUGE' defensemen, the 31-year-old brings substantial experience, having played 141 NHL regular-season games across various teams.



Megna's arrival raises questions about the team's defensive lineup and potential movements to Rockford for players like Louis Crevier or Isaak Phillips. Additionally, speculation looms regarding a trade to bolster the forward group, considering the mounting injuries in that department. The plot thickens as forward Anthony Beauvillier joins the injured reserve, adding to the Blackhawks' challenges.

Blackhawks acquired Seattle Kraken D Jaycob Megna off waivers and place F Anthony Beauvillier (left wrist) on injured reserve.

Megna is a Northbrook native who went to Glenbrook North.


Notably, Megna is in the final season of a two-year deal with a $762,500 cap hit, providing an intriguing backdrop to the team's maneuverings.
