| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Blackhawks made another minor-league trade on Wednesday, a few hours before the 2 p.m. trade deadline, sending tough guy Rob Flick from the AHL Rockford IceHogs to the Boston Bruins for minor-league center Maxime Sauve.

Sauve has 10 goals and 13 assists in 52 games for the Providence Bruins. He played one NHL game last season. He was a second-round pick by Boston in 2008.

Flick had three goals, two assists and 97 penalty minutes in 51 games with the IceHogs this season. He had seven goals and six assists last season. He was a fourth-round pick in 2010.

It was the first trade of the day in the NHL, as most teams made their big moves on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the Hawks dealt Rockford forward Philppe Paradis to the Lightning for the rights to Cornell junior defenseman Kirill Gotovets.
