Blackhawks deal Fraser to Oilers

CHICAGO (AP) — The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have made another deal, trading center Colin Fraser to the Edmonton Oilers for a sixth-round draft pick.

The 25-year-old Fraser had 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) and 108 penalty minutes in 157 regular-season games with the Blackhawks over the past four years. He had seven goals and 19 points this past season.

The move on Thursday comes a day after the Blackhawks sent playoff star Dustin Byfuglien, defenseman Brent Sopel and forward Ben Eager to Atlanta.

In exchange, Chicago got first- (24th overall) and second-round picks in this week's NHL draft as well as forwards Marty Reasoner, Joey Crabb and Jeremy Morin from the Thrashers.

By acquiring the 151st pick from the Oilers, the Blackhawks now have 11 selections in the draft — five in the first two rounds (24, 30, 43, 54 and 60).
