Chicago Blackhawks Rumors: Forward Becoming Offseason Trade Candidate

The Chicago Blackhawks continued their massive rebuild before the 2023 Trade Deadline passed, as they moved Patrick Kane, Jake McCabe, Sam Lafferty, Max Domi, and Jack Johnson. More changes are expected to occur during the offseason as well, as there are rumblings that Taylor Raddysh will be shopped. 

Raddysh's trade value is at its highest right now, as he is blossoming into an effective middle-six forward and carries an affordable $758,333 cap hit until the end of the 2023-24 campaign. He also will remain a restricted free agent once this deal expires, so the Blackhawks could land an excellent return for him. The shocking Tanner Jeannot return at the deadline should also heighten Chicago's interest in going down this road with Raddysh.

Raddysh is thriving with the Blackhawks this season, as he has 20 goals to go along with 33 points in 68 games. As a result, do not be surprised to see several teams make a push for the 25-year-old winger this offseason.
