With free agency just around the corner, the NHL news cycle is going to become a frenzy as teams sort out their rosters for next season. The Blackhawks won't be as active as many other teams given how much of their roster is already set in stone, but they'll be making moves all the same to get ready for another possible Stanley Cup run.

Already this offseason, we've seen the Hawks trade Andrew Shaw, Teuvo Teravainan and Bryan Bickell, so GM Stan Bowman hasn't been shy about making changes to manage under the salary cap. The team currently has around $3 million in salary cap space to work with entering free agency, so Bowman will be able to acquire a new piece or two soon.

NHL free agency opens on Friday, and already we've heard a number of rumors about what the team intends to do in the coming days. Here's a look at every major Hawks-related rumor that we've covered at Second City Hockey this summer, and we'll continue updating this throughout the offseason.
