Blackhawks players were likely a little more upbeat Thursday than they usually are following a loss.

The news of the Andrew Ladd’s return to Chicago made the 3-1 loss to Nashville easy to forget.

The Blackhawks dealt prospect Marko Dano and a pair of high picks to Winnipeg for the Jets captain, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
