The Golden Knights have acquired Dylan Sikura from the Blackhawks for Brandon Pirri.

Sikura was a sixth-round pick of the Blackhawks in 2014 and turned pro in 2018. The 25-year-old winger spent most of the 2020 season with Rockford (AHL), where he was second on the team with 33 points (14G / 19A) in 45 games. Sikura has 14 points (1G / 13A) in 47 career NHL games and will be a fringe NHLer with Vegas following this trade.

Sikura was recalled from Rockford (AHL) and will make his season debut on Sunday.

Sikura has been solid in the AHL this season, leading Rockford with 16 points (9G / 7A) in 22 games. Sikura will take Anton Wedin's spot on the roster and in the lineup and needs to make the most of this opportunity. He has struggled in his NHL career to-date, posting just 11 assists and no goals in 38 games.

The Blackhawks have signed Dylan Sikura to a two-year contract worth $1.5M ($750K AAV).

Sikura was a prolific point producer during his time at Northeastern University but has not had the same success at the NHL-level yet. Last year he appeared in 46 AHL games and 33 NHL games. During his time in Rockford he had 17 goals and 18 assists (35 points) but registered just eight assists with the Blackhawks. The lack of wing depth in Chicago should allow Sikura to start the 2020 season in a middle-6 role with the opportunity to move up the lineup if he starts producing.

The Blackhawks reassigned Dylan Sikura to Rockford (AHL).

Sikura was among the final cuts from Blackhawks camp, leaving the team with 13 forwards. Sikura was expected to be a key contributor in an otherwise thin Blackhawks’ bottom-6, however a lacklustre training camp will see him start the season in Rockford. The 23-year-old is coming off of a 54 point (22G / 32A) in 35 game season at Northeastern University.
