Chicago searching for center, defenseman

Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman would like to add some depth to his organization and could be inching closer to a move.

According to, Bowman is in the market for a third-pairing defenseman and a second line center, though he denies a deal is imminent.

The Blackhawks have been scouting several teams lately and have made some eyebrow-raising call-ups, prompting speculation that some of the team's young prospects are being showcased.

There doesn't seem to be a position that's a priority for the team to improve upon, at least for the time being.

"We're kind of looking for a guy that is playing top four on another team but maybe on our team doesn't have to play in that role," Bowman told ESPN. "We'd like to upgrade on our third pairing.

"Ideally, Id like to find a center man. It doesn't have to be a top center man, but somebody that can play and complement top players."
