DALLAS, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired forward Mark McNeill and a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2018 NHL Draft from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for defenseman Johnny Oduya. If Chicago should advance to third round of the playoffs this season, and Oduya plays in 50% or more in first two rounds, then the selection turns into Chicago's third-round pick in 2018. Additionally, Dallas retains 50% on Oduya's contract.

McNeill, 24, has posted 28 points (6-22=28) in 58 games played for Rockford of the American Hockey League (AHL). In 273 career regular season AHL contests, all with Rockford, he has amassed 157 points (72-85=157). He appeared in one career NHL contest with Chicago in 2015-16 collecting three hits. He will report to Texas, Dallas' top development affiliate in the AHL.

The 6-foot-2, 214-pound native of Langley, British Columbia was originally selected by Chicago in the first round (18th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Oduya, 35, has posted seven points (1-6=7) in 37 regular season games this season. Since joining Dallas in 2015-16, he has appeared in 119 regular season games for the team and recorded 28 points (5-23=28).

The 6-foot, 195-pound native of Stockholm, Sweden was signed as a free agent by Dallas on July 15, 2015.

There seems to talk (fans) about Vanek, Ott.. What happened to talk about Howard moving. Flames wanted Bishop but Kings didn’t want him to go there.  IMO, I wouldn’t want him to go to the Wings.

The Flames are left out for a goalie, Howard looks like the Best goalie out there (He was even before Bishop got sent away).  I think he lives close to Holland?? anyway Calgary would be close to home.

Good fit, Playoff exp….Why is he not being moved?  Fleury is staying put until after the playoffs.

Anyone, including some idiot called Chief, says Mrazek, Green,  and…..Z should be traded.

Goofier than a Hawk fan.  You need some Vets to help prospects get into the NHL.  All prospects = Fail=Oilers of the past

Howard is from Ogdensburg, NY, which was nowhere near Calgary last time I checked smile. Seriously though, Darren Helm is the one from that general area IIRC.
