This was primarily a cap dump for the Panthers, who will now be free to explore some high-end options on the trade market with Connolly's $3.5 million cap hit no longer on the books.

The 25-year-old forward will likely report to Florida's taxi squad once he completes his mandatory quarantine.... See More ... See Less

Blackhawks' Lucas Wallmark: Cleared from virus protocols
Wallmark was removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Wednesday.
Although Wallmark's been removed from the protocols list, he'll still need to be added to the Blackhawks' active roster before returning to game action, which likely won't happen until he's participated in a handful or practices. The 25-year-old forward picked up three helpers in five games before entering the league's COVID-19 protocols nearly two weeks ago.... See More ... See Less

Wallmark has been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Blackhawks' Lucas Wallmark: Bags assist
Wallmark collected an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Wallmark picked up the secondary helper on Mattias Janmark's shorthanded empty-net tally in the third period. That gave Wallmark three assists in his last two contests, which accounts for all of his offense so far. The Swede had 25 points in 67 outings split between the Panthers and the Hurricanes in 2019-20 -- there's some potential in the 25-year-old, who also had 57 hits last year.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Lucas Wallmark: Dishes two helpers Tuesday
Wallmark picked up two power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.
He helped set up Dominik Kubalik for tallies in the first and second periods. Wallmark came into Tuesday scoreless through three games and has posted fairly modest offensive numbers through his first two full NHL campaigns, but if continues seeing consistent power-play time, he could have value in deeper fantasy formats....

Blackhawks' Lucas Wallmark: Joining Blackhawks
Wallmart and the Blackhawks agreed to a one-year, $950,000 deal Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.
Wallmark scored 25 points in 67 games with the Hurricanes and Panthers last season, and Florida neglected to offer him a qualifying offer this offseason.

Lucas Wallmark: Doesn't get qualifying offer
Wallmark didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Panthers and will become a UFA on Friday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.
Wallmark was acquired by the Panthers as part of the return for Vincent Trocheck at the trade deadline in February. The 25-year-old Wallmark didn't make much of an impact with his new team, registering two points in seven appearances after the trade. The Panthers will let him walk, and the Swede will look to latch on somewhere else in a bottom-six role. He's produced at least 25 points in each of the last two seasons and should garner some interest.... See More ... See Less

Wallmark, along with Erik Haula, Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen, were traded to Florida from Carolina on Monday in exchange for Vincent Trocheck, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Wallmark scored in Saturday's clash with Toronto, which ended a 15-game goal drought during which he recorded just one helper. The 24-year-old needs just six more points to top the 28 he put up in his first full NHL season last year. With the Panthers, the Swede will almost assuredly take on a bottom-six role....

Wallmark skated a season-low 6:59 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Wallmark has now failed to register a point in 10 straight contests -- that's a four-week stretch dating back to Jan. 16 against the Blue Jackets. Not even a recent one-game stint as a healthy scratch Feb. 4 seems to have lit a fire under him. Once Jordan Martinook returns from an upper-body injury, you could see Wallmark watching more games from the press box. He should not be in anyone's fantasy lineup right now.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Lucas Wallmark: Sitting as healthy scratch
Wallmark (undisclosed) will watch Tuesday's game against St. Louis from the press box as a healthy scratch.
Wallmark exited Sunday's win over Vancouver in the third period after taking a big hit, but that evidently isn't the reason for his absence from the lineup Tuesday. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back in action against Arizona on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
