Brendan Perlini was traded to the Detroit Red Wings by the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.
The forward had requested a trade from the Blackhawks. He was a healthy scratch for nine of Chicago’s first 10 games.
The Blackhawks received the rights to defenseman Alec Regula, who was selected by the Red Wings in the third round (No. 67) of the 2018 NHL Draft but never signed with them. The 19-year-old will remain with London in the Ontario Hockey League.
Perlini was selected by the Arizona Coyotes with the No. 12 pick of the 2014 NHL Draft. The 23-year-old has 72 points (45 goals, 27 assists) in 200 NHL games.
The Blackhawks acquired Perlini with forward Dylan Strome on Nov. 25, 2018, for forward Nick Schmaltz.
