The Chicago Blackhawks dealt forward Brandon Hagel to the Tampa Bay Lightning and got a significant return in the trade.

Chicago sent Hagel and fourth-round picks in 2022 and 2024 to Tampa Bay in exchange for first-round picks in 2023 and 2024, plus forwards Boris Katchouk and Taylor Raddysh.

Hagel is in the midst of a breakout season with 21 goals and 16 assists over 55 games. He’s been on fire lately, racking up seven goals and three assists in his last nine contests, including four markers and two helpers in his last four.

The 23-year-old’s production this campaign already far exceeds his output of nine goals and 15 assists across 52 games last season.

Hagel’s contract carries a $1.5-million cap hit through 2023-24, after which he’d be a restricted free agent, according to CapFriendly.
