The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired both Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard from the New York Islanders at the expense for a fourth-round Entry Draft pick, reports NHL.com.

Regin has played 44 games for New York this season, scoring seven goals in the process. The 27-year-old tallied a season-high two points against Phoenix on October 8 and recently surpassed 200 games in the NHL.

The Denmark native has scored a total of 62 points in 222 career games spread across both Ottawa and the Islanders.

Before moving to the NHL Regin cut out a fine career for himself in the AHL for the Binghamton Senators recording 47 points in the 2008/09 season. He also scored 58 points with Timra of the Swedish Hockey League between 2005 and 2008.

Regin was a third round draft pick for the Senators on 2004 Entry Draft.

Bouchard has played a significantly smaller amount of games this season (28) and unsurprisingly has fewer goals (nine).

The 29-year-old recorded a season high seven-game scoring streak for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in the AHL last season. He also provided a season best three-game assist streak for the Islanders in October.

Minnesota Wild selected Bouchard in the first round, eighth overall, in the 2002 Entry Draft.

He will report directly to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. The Blackhawks have also reassigned Brandon Pirri to Rockford.
