The Arizona Coyotes announced Sunday that the team has dealt forwards Brendan Perlini and Dylan Strome to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for center Nick Schmaltz.

The moves sees the Coyotes part with their top picks in the 2014 and 2015 entry drafts in Perlini and Strome, respectively.

Perlini was in his third season with the Coyotes. Through 22 games this year, he's tallied two goals and four assists.

Arizona drafted Strome third overall in 2015, behind Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, and one spot ahead of Mitch Marner, who went to the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 20 appearances this season, Strome has recorded three goals and three assists.

Schmaltz comes to the Coyotes after collecting 11 points in 23 games this season, good for fifth in team scoring with the Blackhawks. He finished last campaign with 52 points in 78 games.

The move marks the latest deal between the Coyotes and Blackhawks following recent trades involving Vinnie Hinostroza, Richard Panik, and Niklas Hjalmarsson, among others.
