Reports: Chicago trades away G Lehner, D Gustafsson

The Chicago Blackhawks reportedly pulled off a pair of last-hour deals on Monday, the NHL’s trade deadline, sending goaltender Robin Lehner to Las Vegas and defenseman Erik Gustafsson to Calgary.

An hour after the trade deadline passed, Lehner sent out a pair of tweets: one thanking Chicago and the other saying he is “really excited to join Vegas.”

Subban, 26, is 9-7-3 with a 3.18 GAA and .890 save percentage in 20 games this season. The younger brother of star Devils defenseman P.K. Subban, Malcolm is 30-23-7 in 65 career games with a 2.97 GAA and .899 save percentage.

Chicago sent Gustafsson, 27, to the Flames for a reported third-round pick.

Gustafsson has six goals and 20 assists in 59 games this season, after going for 17 and 43 for 60 points (all career highs) last season. He has 116 points (28 goals, 88 assists) in four seasons with Chicago, which selected him in the fourth round (No. 93 overall) in 2012.
