Another offseason for the Chicago Blackhawks means lots of changes. The team is once again up against the salary cap with a talented, expensive roster that’ll require tinkering before the start of next season.

We’ve already seen some minor moves come to set the stage for the offseason, but GM Stan Bowman will really roll up his sleeves to retool this roster beginning with the expansion in mid-June. Then comes the entry draft and free agency as the NHL summer hits high gear.

How will this team look next season? It’s hard to say at this point exactly, but standing pat won’t be an option. The Blackhawks have to make some deals to get this time cap compliant by October, and they need to do so while keeping the championship window open in the Patrick Kane-Jonathan Toews era.

With so many moving pieces likely in store, here’s a list of every trade and signing made by the Blackhawks this offseason. We’ll continue updating and bumping this list as new moves are made.
