The Bruins and Blackhawks got the trade ball rolling.
The B’s have traded Maxime Sauve to Chicago for center Rob Flick, the team announced in a news release Wednesday.
Flick, 22, has three goals and two assists in 51 games this season for the Rockford IceHogs. He has 97 PIMs to go with seven fights, including some involvement in this epic brawl with the Canucks’ AHL affiliate just last month.
“Hopefully I can bring the physical aspect to the game,” he told TSN. “I think there’s a good opportunity there for me, and hopefully I can take advantage of that.”
The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder was selected by the Blackhawks in the fourth round (No. 120 overall) of the 2010 NHL entry draft. With the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors during the 2010-11 season, he potted 27 goals and helped out on 30 more in 68 games to go with 167 PIMs. During his stint with the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors, Flick played with Kaspars Daugavins (during the 2008-09 season), who is also new to the Bruins.
Sauve, 23, has 10 goals and 13 assists in 52 games for the Providence Bruins this season. The No. 47 overall pick in 2008 made one appearance for Boston in his four years with the organization.
