After being sent to Dallas over the summer, it looks as if Patrick Sharp is officially moving on.
The former Chicago Blackhawks alternate captain and his wife Abby are renting out their 7,300-square-foot brick and limestone Lakeview mansion, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The six-bedroom, 13-room home is being offered up at $10,500 a month, according to the Tribune, and sits on an extra-wide lot in the North Side neighborhood’s Southport Corridor.
Sharp and his family first purchased the place in 2012 for $2.95 million, according to the publication.
The Blackhawks sent the winger to the Dallas Stars in July, after months of speculation and a foreboding sense of inevitability. The trade trimmed $6.7 million away from the Blackhawks' payroll for this season.
Leaving the Lakeview residence for good must be a bittersweet move for the winger, who was the first to admit the hardest part about leaving the Hawks would be saying goodbye to his teammates and a city he calls home.
“That’s the toughest part, leaving the community,” he said at the time. “I built a home and a family there in Chicago. It’s going to be an emotional time. I’m extremely proud of what I’ve accomplished in the last 10 years both on and off the ice.”
Sharp had a long and productive career with the Blackhawks since coming over in a 2005 trade from the Philadelphia Flyers. He scored over 200 goals in a Hawks uniform, winning three Stanley Cup championships and serving as part of the most successful core group of players in franchise history.
While rumors had been swirling ever since the last season’s trade deadline (and had been percolating to a degree before that), Sharp still wasn’t fully ready for the news.
“I knew it was coming. It still comes as a shock when it happens,” he said. “The conversation with Stan was a tough one. He’s done a lot for me in my career. Whenever you leave an organization, there’s certainly mixed emotions. I really enjoyed my time with the Hawks, and I’ve grown into the person I am today because of that organization.”
