The Blackhawks and the Blues completed a trade this afternoon. The Hawks sent their 6th round pick from the 2005 draft, goalie Joseph Fallon, to St. Louis for former Hawk Danny Richmond and goalie Hannu Toivonen.
All players were immediately assigned to their AHL affliates. Whether the Hawks are looking to use the entire nation of Finland as their organizational backstops or St. Louis really liked what they saw in Fallon, it’s difficult to see why this trade was consumated.
Perhaps we’ll have a clearer vision by Wednesday afternoon.
