The Chicago Blackhawks acquired winger Anthony Duclair from the Arizona Coyotes in a four-player trade Wednesday.

Chicago also got defenseman Adam Clendening in the move that seeks to shake up a perennial contender fighting to maintain a playoff position. The NHL-worst Coyotes received winger Richard Panik and minor leaguer Laurent Dauphin.

Duclair has nine goals and six assists in 33 games this season, scoring in each of his last two games after asking the Coyotes to trade him. Acquired from New York in 2015 in the deal that sent Keith Yandle to the Rangers, Duclair had 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games in 2015-16, then had only five goals and 10 assists in 58 games last season.

“It’s gone back for a few years now where the team wasn’t particularly happy with the player and the player wasn’t particularly happy with the team,” said.

BRUINS: Left wing Brad Marchand will represent Boston on the Atlantic Division team at the 3-on-3 All-Star tournament on Jan. 28 in Tampa, Florida.

The league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning will be the best represented team at the event, with captain Steven Stamkos, top scorer Nikita Kucherov, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy and defenseman Victor Hedman joining Marchand on the Atlantic Division team.

SABRES: Coach Phil Housley said it was “good to see some emotion” from his struggling team after forward Evander Kane and defenseman Justin Falk had to be separated following a brief shoving match during practice Wednesday.

SENATORS: Forward Bobby Ryan did not travel with the team to Toronto on Wednesday because of a hand injury. The team did not yet know how long he will be sidelined.

WEDNESDAY’S GAME

SENATORS 4, MAPLE LEAFS 3: Tom Pyatt broke a tie with 3:05 left and Ottawa won at Toronto in the final game for both teams before their bye weeks.

Pyatt took a feed from Matt Duchene on a 3-on-1 – after Toronto defenseman Morgan Rielly got caught pinching at Ottawa’s blue line – and beat Frederik Andersen high to the blocker side.

Thomas Chabot, Mike Hoffman and Gabriel Dumont also scored for the Senators. Craig Anderson made 44 saves.
