Dallas Stars Acquire Patrick Sharp in Huge Trade

With the Chicago Blackhawks in salary cap trouble and needing to make some big moves during the offseason, Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill jumped into action and worked a deal that will see four players saying goodbye to their current teams and packing their bags.

The player garnishing the most attention in this deal is Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp, a three time Stanley Cup winner who will likely be a key part of the Stars offense next season. In addition to Sharp, the Blackhawks also dealt defenseman Stephen Johns to Dallas, receiving veteran defenseman Trevor Daley and forward Ryan Garbutt to Chicago. Dallas will retain 50% of Garbutt’s contract for the 2014-2015 season as well.

33 year old Patrick Sharp has been a key part of Chicago’s success in recent years, particularly with their most recent Cup win, notching 5 goals and 10 assists in the postseason. In addition to his postseason success, Sharp posted 16 goals and 27 assists during the regular season for a total of 43 points.
