Blackhawks acquire Zack Smith from Senators for Artem Anisimov

Sporting News

The Blackhawks have traded one forward for another.

Chicago has acquired Senators alternate captain Zack Smith for Artem Anisimov, the team announced Tuesday.

Both players are signed through 2021, but Smith is due to make $3.25 million per year and Anisimov is due about $1.75 million per year.

So while the Senators might be getting the more productive player historically, they are still clearing out some cap space as they continue to go through what is going to be a lengthy rebuild.
