Blackhawks Trade Max Domi, Dylan Wells to Dallas Stars for Anton Khudobin, 2025 Draft Pick

The Chicago Blackhawks have traded forward Max Domi and goaltender Dylan Wells to the Dallas Stars in exchange for goaltender Anton Khudobin and a 2025 second-round draft pick.[0]

Domi, 28, had an impressive season with the Blackhawks, accruing 18 goals and 49 points in 60 games.[1] He was the team leader in goals, assists, and points, and also led the team in power-play points (8-10–18) and shared the team lead in power-play goals (8) and power-play points (8-10–18).[2] Additionally, Domi led the Blackhawks in overtime markers (2) and game-winning tallies (4).[2] From February 15th to the 27th, he had a 7-game point streak with 4 goals and 10 assists for a total of 14 points. On February 19th against Toronto, he had a season-high of 4 points with 1 goal and 3[2]

Khudobin, 36, has appeared in 24 games with the Texas Stars (AHL) this season, boasting a 13-4-4 record with a 2.89 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage.[3] He last got significant playing time in the NHL with Dallas in 2020-21, where he had a .905 save-percentage and 2.54 goals against average in 32 NHL games, and helped lead the Stars to the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[4]

The Stars will look to Domi to be a key contributor with the team.[5] He can play both center and wing, and provide energy and grit to their lineup as they make a push for the playoffs. He will also provide a veteran presence and has had success in the NHL as evidenced by his 18 goals and 31 assists this season.

It remains to be seen how Domi will fit in with the Stars, but his offensive production and versatility make him an attractive addition.[6] His per-hour offense aligns with career norms, and he will need to make up for the lack of defensive play with good offensive play.[6] If he can maintain the same focus in a lesser role, then he could be a good short-term fit.[7]
