CHICAGO - The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have acquired centre Jeff Taffe from the Florida Panthers in exchange for centre Marty Reasoner.

The 29-year-old Jaffe had a goal and an assist in 21 games with the Panthers last season. He has 21 goals and 23 assists over parts of seven seasons with Phoenix (2002-04, 2005, 2006-07), New York Rangers (2005), Pittsburgh (2007-09) and Florida (2009-10).
