The Blackhawks and Flyers make a trade
Mark Lazerus: The Chicago Blackhawks traded forward Evan Barratt to the Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman Cooper Zech.
Zech will report to Rockford of the AHL.
Adam Kimelman: “Flyers have acquired forward Evan Barratt from the Blackhawks for defenseman Cooper Zech. Barratt is from Bristol, Pa. Has 0 points in 2 games with AHL Rockford this season, was 14-14-28 in 63 AHL games last season. Will provide decent AHL depth in Lehigh Valley”
Jets coach Rick Bowness won’t travel with the team on their road trip
Kieffer Bellows on waivers
Elliotte Friedman: The New York Islanders have placed forward Kieffer Bellows on waivers.
Kevin Kurz: “Re: Bellows, wouldn’t surprise me if Lou was trying to trade him the past few days and had no takers. Could be why he didn’t play for Bailey/Beauvillier. And, it could mean that there’s already a team that the Isles know about that are willing to take on his deal. We’ll see.”
Wow. Kieffer Bellows from the New York Islanders is on waivers! We would be really surprised if no team took him. He’s still young, very good in zone entries. A change of scenery could help him. pic.twitter.com/D50PhUGYyX
