Chicago Blackhawks: A Vancouver offer of center Artem Chubarov, winger Jason King and goalie Alexander Auld in exchange for Chicago center Alex Zhamnov "couldn't be more wrong," Blackhawks assistant GM Dale Tallon told the Arlington Daily Herald.

Last week chief executive officer of Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment Stan McAmmon said contract extension talks wouldn't resume until the offseason because he didn't want them to be a distraction.
