Will the Hawks go after Loui Eriksson?

Loui Eriksson would be the perfect fit. A smart, two-way vet who can play in all situations, he comes with a workable cap hit ($4.25 million) and an expiring contract. The Bruins are looking for a young, NHL-ready defenseman in return, something Chicago can’t provide, but the Hawks have other assets, including this year’s first-round pick/prospect forward Marko Dano, who might get the ball rolling.

It’s no secret that the Blackhawks are looking to add a winger who is capable of playing alongside Jonathan Toews on their first line. The questions are who do they like, and what will it take to get a deal done?

Former Hawk Andrew Ladd is another option, but the Jets also are looking for a young defender.
