CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks stood pat on the final day of NHL trading on Wednesday.

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said Saturday he didn’t anticipate making any moves in the final trading days, but he did end up moving prospect Brandon Pirri to the Florida Panthers for draft picks on Sunday and acquired defensemen David Rundblad and Mathieu Brisebois from the Phoenix Coyotes for a second-round draft pick on Monday.

“We were not looking to do anything today,” Bowman said after the deadline passed on Wednesday afternoon. “I talked over the weekend that we made our big move earlier when we got Kris Versteeg and we’ve made some other minor moves in between. We actually were excited to acquire David Rundblad yesterday, but we weren’t looking to do anything else.

“With the way the cap situation is this year, every team is tight against the cap so in order to make moves you’re going to have trade money away, and we don’t have any players that we want to trade away. We’ve really accomplished a lot over the last couple of seasons with the group we have here, and we’re not looking to break it apart and try to bring in new players. If we can add to it, which we’ve been doing all year, by not trading away roster players from here that was always our objective.”

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks didn't make any significant moves prior to Wednesday's trade deadline, but general manager Stan Bowman said he was satisfied with the players he acquired and with his team going forward.

The Blackhawks made three moves leading up to the deadline and just one which affects the team at the NHL level this season. They acquired NHL veteran center Michal Handzus from the San Jose Sharks for a fourth-round pick on Monday, the rights to Cornell University defenseman Kirill Gotovets from the Tampa Lightning for forward Philippe Paradis on Tuesday and minor-leaguer Maxime Sauvé from the Boston Bruins for forward Rob Flick on Wednesday.
