Bryan Bickell’s agent: ‘Hopefully, we can work out a trade’

Bickell’s wish was ruined by the Blackhawks and the rest of the league on Sunday. No team claimed Bickell off waivers prior to the Sunday morning deadline, and he was later reassigned to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL for the second time this season.

“If we are watching things with our eyes open, it’s pretty clear that I would say his future is likely not with the Blackhawks,” said Todd Diamond, Bickell’s agent. “Hopefully, we can work out a trade. Stan [Bowman] is open to that. But making trading these days in the NHL can be a time-consuming process where in the past you could just move bodies around much easier. Now it’s not just a hockey trade, but it’s also a financial trade. Sometimes it just takes time. For some teams, every day counts towards the cap. Sometimes it can take a couple days or it can take months.”
