Blackhawks acquire Taffe for Reasoner in trade with Florida

The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have acquired center Jeff Taffe from the Florida Panthers in exchange for center Marty Reasoner.

The 29-year-old Jaffe had a goal and an assist in 21 games with the Panthers last season. He has 21 goals and 23 assists over parts of seven seasons with Phoenix (2002-04, 2005, 2006-07), New York Rangers (2005), Pittsburgh (2007-09) and Florida (2009-10).

Reasoner was slated to earn $1.2 million in 2010-11, according to the players' union. He leaves without playing a game for Chicago. The Blackhawks acquired the 33-year-old Reasoner in a trade with Atlanta on June 24 for playoff star Dustin Byfuglien, defenseman Brent Sopel and forward Ben Eager.
