The Chicago Blackhawks have added a reliable veteran to provide them with some extra forward depth as they make a push to qualify for the playoffs.

The team announced Monday that they have acquired forward Peter Holland from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenceman Darren Raddysh.

Holland, who has spent parts of seven seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Arizona Coyotes, and Rangers organizations, will report to the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate Rockford IceHogs.

The 28-year old has a cap hit of $675,000, and has yet to make an appearance in the NHL season. He has played in 52 games for the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack so far in 2018/19, posting 20 goals and 29 assists during that span.
