Red Wings Acquire Perlini in Trade with Blackhawks

DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings have acquired forward Brendan Perlini in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 23-year-old Perlini has been a healthy scratch for most of this season, appearing in just one game. But he has 45 goals and 27 assists in 200 career appearances with Chicago and Arizona.

Perlini was selected by the Coyotes with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 draft.

The Red Wings parted with defenceman Alec Regula in Monday’s deal. The 19-year-old Regula will remain with the London Knights in the Ontario Hockey League.

Regula, a West Bloomfield, Michigan, native, was drafted by Detroit in the third round last year.
