The Chicago Blackhawks ditched some salary, while the Los Angeles Kings got a defenseman they can use right now as the two teams hooked up on a trade that sees Olli Maatta go to L.A. in exchange for minor-leaguer Brad Morrison. Chicago retains $750,100 of Maatta’s $4.1 million cap hit as part of the deal and the Finnish blueliner has two more years left on his pact.
