Brandon Pirri isn't sure how to feel about the trade rumors surrounding him.

"It's the first time I've been involved in something like this where there have been rumors flying around," Pirri said. He's excelled in the minors, but is has had some difficulty firmly establishing himself in the NHL. A change of scenery might benefit him and Chicago might accommodate that given its recent acquisitions of Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard and the fact that Pirri is set to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Don't be surprised if the Blackhawks trade Braddon Pirri later this month.

He certainly received a number of opportunities to play on one of the Hawks' top two lines but was never able to take advantage of it. With the acquisitions of Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard, it appears the Blackhawks have tired of waiting for Pirri to develop. Some other NHL team may be able to give Pirri the time and chance to hone his skills making him a prime trade target. Stay tuned.
Feb 8 - 12:48 PM

Brandon Pirri has been returned to the minors.

Pirri has 11 points in 28 games with Chicago this season. The Blackhawks sent him down after acquiring Peter Regin from the Islanders.
Feb 7 - 8:42 AM

Brandon Pirri is projected to play on Chicago's second line on Tuesday.

Pirri will skate alongside Kris Versteeg and Patrick Kane. "It's another opportunity, and that's what I was looking for," Pirri said. "I got a good taste of it (at the end of 2013), and it was disappointing getting sent down. But this is another opportunity, and I want to make the most of it." He has six goals and 11 points in 24 games with Chicago this season.

Brandon Pirri has been summoned from the minors.

He has notched six goals and 11 points in 24 games this season with the Blackhawks. Pirri has produced 13 points, including nine assists, in 16 games with Chicago's AHL affiliate in Rockford. If he gets another shot at centering the big club's second line then he could be worth taking a look at.
