The Dallas Stars were seeking a partner for Tyler Seguin, and it looks like they’ve found him. Max Domi, a dynamic forward, will be acquired by the Stars in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks. For a failing Blackhawks team in Chicago, Domi is having a fantastic season. There was some talk of max intending to re-sign with the hockey team, but Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson preferred to transfer Domi for a few assets in order to continue his rebuild. 

$3 million against the cap 

The 28-year-old forward makes $3 million over the limit and is a scheduled unrestricted free agency. Domi’s recent success against the Stars, in which he scored two goals and added an assist, undoubtedly had an impact. About Khudobin, the seasoned goaltender is in the final year of his agreement and has spent months buried in the AHL. He might play a few minutes for the Blackhawks as they try to win the Connor Bedard competition in the closing stages.

Jonathan Quick flipped to Golden Knights

In exchange for goaltender Michael Hutchinson and a seventh-round pick in 2025, the Vegas Golden Knights purchased goaltender Jonathan Quick from the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the Vladislav Gavrikov deal, Quick was dealt to Columbus earlier this week. Half of Quick’s pay will be kept by the Blue Jackets. With starter Logan Thompson and backup Laurent Brossoit both injured, the 37-year-old provides the Golden Knights with a seasoned insurance policy in net.

In Thompson’s absence, Adin Hill served as the starter, with Hutchinson serving as his backup.With a 3.50 GAA and.876 SV% during 31 games this season, Quick has been among the worst goalies in the NHL. After the season, he will be an unrestricted free agent.

Tyler Bertuzzi to Boston Bruins 

Forward Tyler Bertuzzi was acquired by the Boston Bruins from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a 2024 first-round protected pick and a 2025 fourth-round protected pick. 50 percent of Bertuzzi’s $4.75 million salary will be kept by the Red Wings. Bertuzzi, who missed a lot of time with a lower-body ailment, has four goals and 14 points in 29 games this season. The 28-year-old is coming off the best season of his seven-year NHL career, which included 30 goals and 62 points. 

Bertuzzi will become an unrestricted free agency this upcoming offseason after completing a two-year, $9.5 million contract ($4.75 million AAV). He is now in the last year of that deal. In the aftermath of winger Taylor Hall’s injury, who is reportedly seeking independent advice on a lower-body injury, the move will strengthen the league-leading Bruins’ core scoring.
