The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired winger Anthony Duclair from the Arizona Coyotes in a four-player trade. The teams announced the deal Wednesday night that sends Panik and minor leaguer Laurent Dauphin to Arizona.

Panik has six goals and 10 assists in 37 games after signing a $5.6 million, two-year contract. By trading the 26-year-old and his $2.8 million hit for Duclair's $1.2 million and pending restricted free agency, the Blackhawks clear valuable salary-cap space this season and next.
