NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Winnipeg Jets James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports

The Blackhawks dropped their eighth straight game in a 6-3 loss to the Jets on Tuesday at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg. Chicago plays the second half of a back-to-back Wednesday against the Penguins at the United Center.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the White Sox acquired right-handed starter Ivan Nova from the Pirates in exchange for pitcher Yordi Rosario and international spending money. Cubs will reportedly lose bench coach Brandon Hyde, who will take the managerial job for the Orioles. For the third straight year, the Fire did not have a player selected in an MLS expansion draft.
