Blackhawks Trade Scott Darling to Carolina


Stan Bowman’s purge continues.

This time it was not a firing or release, but a trade that will send the rights to Scott Darling to the Carolina Hurricanes for a 2017 third round pick.

Darling, a 28-year old Lemont native, spent 4 seasons with the Blackhawks organization. He was to hit restricted free agency this July and was almost guaranteed to cash out elsewhere.

Darling will likely assume the starter’s role for a young, but talented Carolina squad.
