CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Blackhawks acquired left wing Sergei Samsonov from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defenseman Jassen Cullimore and left wing Tony Salmelainen.
Samsonov appeared in 63 games for the Canadiens last season, recording nine goals and 17 assists. The 28-year-old Samsonov is a veteran of nine NHL seasons, having also played for Boston and Edmonton.
``We feel he has a lot left in the tank and playing under Denis Savard will bring out the offensive creativity that he has shown in the past,'' Blackhawks general manager Dale Tallon said Saturday.
Cullimore spent the last two seasons with the Blackhawks, appearing in 118 games and scoring two goals while totaling 117 penalty minutes. Salmelainen played one season with the Blackhawks, appearing in 57 games and scoring six goals.
