Blackhawks Make Moves to Boost Their Second Line

Before the Hawks got on the ice in Edmonton Wednesday they were saying goodbye to three of their forwards. Jack Skille, Hugh Jessiman and David Pacan were sent to the Florida Panthers in exchange for play maker Michael Frolik and goaltender Alexander Salak.

Both Skille and Frolik were top ten draft picks for their teams. Frolik had back to back seasons with twenty plus goals and was second for the Panthers in points with eight goals and twenty one assists. The Hawks will miss their young forward Jack Skille but are excited to add a new face at center to hopefully spark their second line.

“We are very pleased to welcome all three players to our organization,” said Panthers general manager Dale Tallon. “Jack is a high character, big, strong player who will add a physical presence to our line-up and also possesses the ability to score goals. We look forward to the contributions that all three players will make within our organization.”

The Blackhawks look forward to Frolik joining the team and helping with their “One Goal.”
