The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired forward Michael Latta from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenceman Cam Schilling, the team announced Saturday.

Latta, 25, has six points (two goals, four assists) and 67 penalty minutes in 29 games with the AHL’s Ontario Reign this season. He was signed by the Kings as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Schilling, 28, has 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 40 games with the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs in 2016-17. Schilling led all IceHogs defencemen in goals and was second in points at the time of the trade.

Both players are expected to report to their new team’s AHL affiliate.
