    News

    Saarela and Calvin de Haan were dealt to Chicago from Carolina in exchange for Anton Forsberg and Gustav Forsling on Monday.

    Impact

    Saarela racked up 30 goals and 54 points in 69 games for AHL Charlotte last season but has yet to make his NHL debut. The 22-year-old likely could've fought for a bottom-six spot during the preseason with the Hurricanes. Chicago drafted Saarela's brother, Antti, this weekend at the 2019 NHL Draft.
