The Blackhawks made one more small move before Monday's 2 p.m. trade deadline, acquiring forward Tim Jackman and a seventh-round pick in 2017 from Anaheim for forward Corey Tropp. Jackman has been assigned to the San Diego Gulls of the American Hockey League.
Jackman, 34, appeared in two games with the Ducks, spending the majority of his time in the AHL, where he recorded two points in 22 games with San Diego.
Tropp, 26, scored 11 goals and 17 assists in 51 games with the AHL's Albany Devils this season.

He was originally acquired by the Blackhawks over the offseason in a blockbuster deal, along with Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano, Jeremy Morin and a fourth-round draft pick in 2016, that sent Brandon Saad, Alex Broadhurst and Michael Paliotta to Columbus.
Jackman carries a $700,000 cap hit and is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
