Bears trade down from No. 36, recoup picks lost in Mitch Trubisky trade

The Bears on Friday traded their second (No. 36) and seventh-round (No. 211) picks to Arizona for the Cardinals' second (No. 45), fourth (119th) and sixth-round (197th) picks a day after dealing away four picks to move up one spot to take quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears also acquired a 2018 fourth-round pick from Arizona in the trade. 

The Bears on Thursday traded the Nos. 3, 67 and 111 picks, as well as a 2018 third-round pick, to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for the No. 2 pick. 

Prior to the trade, the Bears only had four picks remaining (second round, fourth round, fifth round, seventh round). They now have the Nos. 45, 117, 119, 147 and 197 picks. 

Arizona used the No. 36 pick to select Washington safety Budda Baker.

Blackhawks trade Scott Darling to Hurricanes for draft pick

The Blackhawks have traded goaltender Scott Darling to the Carolina Hurricanes for a third-round draft pick in 2017, the team announced Friday.

"We could count on Scott in any situation as he was always reliable," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. "We appreciate his contributions to the Blackhawks organization — including a Stanley Cup Championship team — and we wish him well as he continues his career in Carolina."

In three seasons with Chicago, the 28-year-old Lemont native had a 39-17-9 record with a 2.37 goals against average, .923 save percentage and four shutouts. He was also a key member of the 2015 Stanley Cup-winning team.

Darling was set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
