Blackhawks trade Brendan Perlini to the Red Wings for defenseman prospect Alec Regula

Chicago Tribune Sports 1 month ago

Brendan Perlini will get a do-over. So will the Blackhawks.

The Hawks granted Perlini’s trade request and dealt the little-used forward to the Red Wings on Wednesday for 19-year-old defenseman Alec Regula, the Wings’ 2018 third-round pick.

Regula, the No. 67 pick last year, has not yet signed an entry-level contract. The Hawks need to sign him by June or they will lose his rights.

Perlini came to the Hawks last November from the Coyotes along with Dylan Strome for Nick Schmaltz. While Strome and Schmaltz have excelled with their new teams, Perlini failed to prove he deserved a regular spot in the Hawks lineup last season.

After scoring 15 points (12 goals, 3 assists) in 46 games with the Hawks, he held out all summer as a restricted free agent before agreeing to a one-year deal worth $874,125 just days before training camp started.

Perlini then found himself in a predicament: He was too valuable to try to send to the minors and risk losing on waivers and not valuable enough to earn a place in the Hawks lineup.

He got into one game this season and saw only 7 minutes, 49 seconds of ice time.
