The Blackhawks have acquired Olli Maatta from the Penguins for Dominik Kahun and a 2019 fifth-round pick.

Maatta was a first-round pick in 2012 but fell out of favour in Pittsburgh this past season. The Penguins brought in Jack Johnson and acquired Erik Gudbranson at the trade deadline and continued to push Maatta down the depth chart. The 24-year-old has had some injury issues throughout his career and is coming off of a season where he had 14 points (1G / 13A) in 60 games. Maatta, who has three years left at $4.083M AAV, will likely play on the Blackhawks third pairing.

The Flyers have acquired Matt Niskanen from the Capitals for Radio Gudas.

Niskanen, who has a modified no-trade clause, has two years left on his seven-year deal that carries a $5.75M cap-hit. While with Washington, Niskanen never turned out the offensive production that he did in his final year in Pittsburgh, earning himself that huge deal. Since signing with the Capitals, Niskanen is tied for 38th among defensemen with 156 points (29G / 127A) in 390 games. He had eight goals and 17 assists (25 points) in 80 games a season ago.
