The 2010–11 Chicago Blackhawks season is the club's 84th season in the National Hockey League (NHL). The Blackhawks will be defending the Stanley Cup.

Off-season[edit | edit source]

Under pressure to fit the team's player salaries under the salary cap for the 2010-11 season, the team started making trades. On June 24, the club traded Dustin Byfuglien, Ben Eager, Brent Sopel and Akim Aliu to the Atlanta Thrashers for Marty Reasoner, Joseph Crabb, Jeremy Morin, a first-round pick (#24 overall) in 2010 and a second-round pick (#54 overall) in 2010.[1] Later that same day, restricted free agent Colin Fraser was traded to the Edmonton Oilers for a sixth-round pick in 2010.[2] On June 30, 2010, the Toronto Maple Leafs also traded for right winger Kris Versteeg from Chicago in a five-player trade. The Maple Leafs gave up forwards Viktor Stalberg, Chris DiDomenico and Philippe Paradis. Toronto also acquired the rights to 21-year-old left winger Bill Sweatt, who was a second-round pick in 2007.[3] On July 1, 2010, the Blackhawks traded Andrew Ladd to the Atlanta Thrashers for Ivan Vishnevskiy and a second-round draft pick in 2011.[4]. On July 9, 2010 Niklas Hjalmarsson was signed to an offer sheet by the San Jose Sharks, however the Blackhawks matched the offer on July 12, 2010[5], thereby retaining his services and forgoing compensation from the Sharks for signing a restricted free agent. This signing again has put Chicago against the salary cap wall and will more than likely force Chicago to shed more salary.
