Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey. The Blackhawks continue a busy preseason week on Friday with a preseason matchup against the New York Rangers at United Center.

Could Chicago's Nick Leddy be on the move? - Nick Leddy (D) Chicago Blackhawks

Nick Leddy could be a trade candidate for the Chicago Blackhawks, according to hockey insider Elliotte Friedman.

Nick Leddy is expected to be a fixture as the Chicago Blackhawks’ No. 5 defenseman again. What’s up in the air is which players will fill the No. 6, No. 7 and even possibly No. 8 defenseman roles for the Blackhawks this season. Unless Leddy is traded, which his agent recently said he doesn’t expect, Leddy could be paired with a different defenseman on any given night as he did last season. He found himself partnered with Michal Rozsival, Sheldon Brookbank, Mike Kostka and David Rundblad last season.

Agent not expecting Hawks to deal Leddy

Time is winding down for the Chicago Blackhawks to get under the salary cap, which means speculation continues to grow over which player or players will be sent packing before the season opener. Nick Leddy's agent, Neil Sheehy, said Monday he doesn't expect the Blackhawks defenseman to be moved to get the team under the $69 million salary cap. The Blackhawks need to reduce somewhere between $1.3 million-$3 million from their roster, depending if any prospects are kept in the NHL, to be cap compliant.
