The Chicago Blackhawks repatriated forward Brandon Pirri by sending Dylan Sikura to the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday.
Pirri will be on his second stint with the Illinois club, who drafted him in the second round of the 2009 National Hockey League (NHL) draft.
In 275 games with the Blackhawks, Florida Panthers, Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers and Knights, he has 72 goals and 121 points.
Sikura has hit the target once in 47 games over the past three seasons with the Blackhawks. He added 13 assists.
The two men still have a year to go on their respective contracts. They receive less than $ 800,000 annually.
