On the day of the one-year anniversary of the Blackhawks' first Stanley Cup in 49 years, Kevin Cheveldayoff and Andrew Ladd had a chance to reminiscence together.

But it was in Winnipeg, where Cheveldayoff, the new franchise's general manager, showed Ladd, the team's prized restricted free agent, around.

"There were some good memories [of the title run], and we talked about the future and moving forward," Cheveldayoff said in phone interview with the Sun-Times.

The trade came less than 24 hours after Hawks GM Stan Bowman sent Kris Versteeg to the Toronto Maple Leafs and a week after trading Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Sopel and Ben Eager to the Thrashers and Colin Fraser to the Edmonton Oilers.

It looks like it may be Andrew Ladd. A source said the gritty winger could potentially be on the move if the Hawks can find the right deal.

Adam Burish and Jordan Hendry were scratches.
