    The Chicago Blackhawks have made another trade on Wednesday, sending goaltender Jean Francois-Berube to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    In exchange, the Blackhawks received forward Jordan Schroeder. Schroeder made 21 appearances with the Blue Jackets last season, registering a goal and an assist in those games.

    As for Berube, the Blackhawks have moved on from the goaltender as questions remain about who will be manning the net for the team on opening night. Corey Crawford is expected to return, but after months of speculation about his health and carefully-worded updates by the team, there are still questions about whether he’ll be active for that game.
