REPORT: Blackhawks Closing In On a Trade With Nashville For Ryan Carpenter (UPDATE: Not So Fast)

Chicago Blackhawks

Ryan Carpenter appears to be the next domino to fall in the Chicago Blackhawks sell-off ahead of the NHL trade deadline. Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting this afternoon that the Blackhawks and Predators are getting close on a deal for Carpenter.

Carpenter will provide the Predators with a solid fourth-line centerman or a depth forward. Carpenter has 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in 59 games for the Blackhawks this season.

The Blackhawks traded Brandon Hagel to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday, acquiring Taylor Raddysh, Boris Katchouk, and a pair of first-rounders in 2023 and 2024. Davidson also landed a conditional 2022 second-rounder earlier today when he traded Marc-André Fleury to the Minnesota Wild. More soon as details emerge.

UPDATE: Ryan Carpenter has been traded to the Calgary Flames for a fifth-round pick in 2024:
