Hawks looking to acquire a struggling player?!

Will this move save or tank the Hawks?!

Larry Brooks of the New York Post recently reported that the Arizona Coyotes are making Max Domi available, and AZCentral.com clarified that while the Coyotes are not desperately trying to move him, they are willing to listen to any offers.

And maybe the Coyotes would be willing to make another trade with the Chicago Blackhawks. 

In the past year, Hawks GM Stan Bowman has added nine players to his roster who are under the age of 25 and could keep going by landing the 22-year-old forward, despite his current slump. 

Domi has tallied only three goals in 52 games this season, which isn't enough for a core player and top-six forward. He did record 19 helpers, but the Coyotes obviously expected more from the young forward. 

But focusing on the positive of his statistics, in 192 games played in the NHL, all with the Arizona Coyotes, Domi has amassed 112 points, 82 of which are assists. The Hockey Writers note that Domi could "become Alex DeBrincat’s setup man for years to come in Chicago". 

Domi is currently on the last year of his entry-level contract and is set to become a restricted free agent when his contract expires and his deal would be a low risk for the Blackhawks, who managed the low-risk affair with Anthony Duclair earlier this season. 

The Hawks have some prospects and picks available and could manage to pull a good deal to land some help up front.

Should the Hawks go after Domi?
