According to the Canadian Press on Tuesday, the Vancouver Canucks traded left winger Anthony Beauvillier of Sorel-Tracy, Quebec to the Chicago Blackhawks for a fifth round draft pick in the 2024 National Hockey League Entry Draft. The trade occurred on the same day the Blackhawks terminated the contract of Canadian Olympic gold medalist Corey Perry for unacceptable behaviour.

The Blackhawks are the third National Hockey League team Beauvillier has played for. He was previously with the New York Islanders from 2016 to 2023, and the Vancouver Canucks at the end of last season and the beginning of this season.

In 82 games in 2022-23 with the Islanders and Canucks, Beauvillier had 18 goals and 22 assists for 40 points. He was a -10 with 24 penalty minutes, four power-play points, five game-winning goals, 176 shots on goal, three faceoff wins, 30 blocked shots, 78 hits, 32 takeaways, and 34 giveaways.

In 22 games in 2023-24, Beauvillier had two goals and six assists for eight points. He was a +8 with four penalty minutes, two power-play points, 37 shots on goal, six faceoff wins, 17 blocked shots, 14 hits, 11 takeaways, and one giveaway. Both of Beauvillier’s goals this season came in a 10-1 Canucks win over the San Jose Sharks on November 2, 2023. Beauvillier scored the last two goals for the Canucks. He scored from Carson Soucy of Viking, Alberta and Filip Hronek at 3:10 of the third period on the power-play to put the Canucks up 9-1, and then scored from Conor Garland at 11:58 of the third period to put the Canucks up 10-1.
