    Former Chicago Blackhawks forward Eric Daze will be honored as he will take the United Center ice on Sunday, January 14 for "One More Shift" prior to the Blackhawks Duncan Keith Jersey taking on the Detroit Red Wings at 11:30 a.m. The Blackhawks are once again honoring past alumni with "One More Shift" this season, an ode to former players that allows fans to recognize them one more time as they skate on the ice. Daze played his entire 11-year career with the Blackhawks (1994-2006). He currently ranks 14th in team history in goals (226), 29th in total points (398) and 40th in assists (172). His 601 career games place him 31st on the all-time franchise list. He led the team in goals twice: 1997-98 with 31 goals (tied with Tony Amonte) and 2001-02 with 38 goals. Daze also recorded a career-high 70 points during the 2001-02 season. He recorded four seasons with 30-plus goals in his career and eight straight with 20-plus goals (1995-2003). Daze totaled six hat tricks in his career, Jonathan Toews Jersey including one four-goal game (March 15, 1998 at Florida). A native of Montreal, Daze was drafted in the fourth round (90th overall) by Chicago in the 1993 NHL Draft. He was named to the NHL All-Rookie team in 1996 and selected to the NHL All-Star Game in 2002 and was named MVP of the game after scoring two goals and an assist. Daze will join the team on the ice during the anthem after the starting lineup has been announced on Sunday. In addition to skating on the ice in full gear, Bobby Hull Jersey in-arena elements will also feature Daze and the highlights of his career. Former forwards Bryan Bickell and Al Secord were the first and second honorees of this season, respectively, marking the continuation of the campaign launched in 2016-17, which honored Blackhawks Ambassador Denis Savard, former forwards Steve Larmer and Jeremy Roenick, and former goaltender Ed Belfour. Sunday's game will be broadcast nationally on NBC, streamed on NBCSports.com and on the NBC Sports app, and can be heard on WGN Radio. The Chicago Blackhawks Keith Magnuson Jersey today acquired forward Anthony Duclair and defenseman Adam Clendening from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forwards Richard Panik and Laurent Dauphin. Clendening will report to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. Duclair, 22, has 15 points (9G, 6A) in 33 games with Arizona this season. He has also scored a goal in two straight games. During the 2015-16 season with the Coyotes, the Pointe-Claire, Quebec, native recorded career highs in goals (20), assists (24), points (44) and games played (81). Originally drafted in the third round (80th overall) of the 2013 National Hockey League Draft by the New York Rangers, Duclair was acquired by Arizona on March 1, 2015.
