Blackhawks looking at Purcell?

The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to add to their roster and bring in some extra fire power before the Feb. 29 trade deadline.

With the deadline two weeks away, trade talks across the NHL will pick up significant steam.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has already been exploring his options, and those options are expected to grow in the coming days.

"The biggest thing is, you're not quite sure what's available around the league," Bowman told the Chicago Sun-Times. "At this point, there's a lot of clustering in the standings. And in order for trades to happen you have to have teams that are willing to look toward next year."

On team already on that path is the Edmonton Oilers, and according to Le Journal de Montreal, on player Bowman is eyeing is Oilers left wing Teddy Purcell.

Purcell, 30, is in the final year of his contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

The Oilers reportedly considered signing Purcell to an extension, but the belief is he'll be moved in the next 14 days.

The Blackhawks are also keeping tabs on Boston Bruins left wing Loui Eriksson, who is also set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
