The Blackhawks have acquired Tomas Fleischmann and Dale Weise from the Canadiens for Phillip Danault and a 2018 2nd round pick.
Fleischmann, 31, is a pending unrestricted free agent, so the Blackhawks have acquired him as a rental winger, who will likely play on their third line. The veteran winger has 10 goals and 10 assists (20 points) in 57 games this season and is expected to make his Blackhawks’ debut on Saturday.
The Canadiens have signed Tomas Fleischmann to a professional tryout.
Fleischmann, 31, spent time with the Panthers and Ducks in 2014-15. In total, he amassed eight goals, 19 assists (27 points) in 66 games. He will look to crack a Canadiens team that is loaded with young wingers.
Fleischmann is a natural winger, but he will dress as a centre tonight in Game 3. Since being acquired by the Ducks, he has one goal and five assists (6 points) in 14 games. He will play because Nate Thompson and Chris Wagner are both battling injury.
The Ducks have acquired Tomas Fleischmann from the Panthers for Dany Heatley and a 2015 3rd round pick.
Fleischmann has scored seven goals with 14 assists (21 points) in 52 games with the Panthers this season. Fleischmann had 56 goals and 72 assists (128 points) in 240 games under Ducks head coach Bruce Bourdreau, when they were both in Washington.
Fleischmann served as a healthy scratch in the Panthers loss to the Wild on Monday. He will be back in the lineup tonight vs. Carolina, with Jimmy Hayes coming out. Fleishmann has just two points (1G / 1A) in 17 games this season.
