Winnipeg Jets Trade Andrew Ladd to Chicago Blackhawks

The Winnipeg Jets have traded Andrew Ladd to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The deal involves captain Andrew Ladd, along with injured Manitoba defenceman Jay Harrison, and Moose Forward Matt Fraser to the Chicago Blackhawks for Center Marko Dano, a 2016 First Round Pick, and a conditional third round draft choice in 2018 that is contingent on the Blackhawks repeating as Stanley Cup Champs.

Blake Wheeler will most likely succeed Ladd as team captain.

The Winnipeg Jets will host the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, March 18. It will be Ladd’s first visit to Winnipeg as a visiting player.
