It doesn’t sound like Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp will be traded to the Dallas Stars.
“He’s a great player, but he’s not what we need right now,” a Stars official told the Dallas Morning News. “It’s that simple.”
Chicago was reportedly eyeing 25-year-old winger Antoine Roussel in return for Sharp, 33, who has two years remaining on his contract, with a cap hit of $5.9 million.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Florida Panthers have also reportedly shown interest in Sharp.
