A trade-deadline primer for the Chicago Blackhawks
As we enter the middle of March, the trade deadline is inching closer. Where does each team stand and what moves should they be looking to make?

Michael Del Zotto drawing interest
When it comes to the Ottawa Senators and the trade deadline, most point to Nick Paul, Chris Tierney, and the rest of the pending unrestricted free agents as the most likely targets. But there is another name, buried on the organizational depth chart, that should always be considered a trade candidate at deadline time.

Assistant District Attorney Mark Dahl told the jury the former rap artist confessed to police he had not stabbed the man in self-defense, but because he thought he was hitting on him, per the outlet.
"The defendant confessed to pulling out a kitchen knife and repeatedly thrusting it into the body of a stranger on the street, killing him," Dahl said via ABC7 New York. "Was there anything that would prevent him from simply running away from Mr. Jolly? No."
