Stillman, 24, appeared in 52 games with Chicago last season, recording two goals, a career-high 12 points, and 36 penalty minutes. He also registered 67 blocked shots, ranking fifth on the team, and led all Blackhawks defencemen in hits per 60 minutes (9.34).

In 108 career regular-season games split between Chicago and Florida, Stillman has 18 points (3-15-18) and 68 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound defenceman also appeared in three playoff games with the Panthers during the 2020 qualifying round.

A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Stillman was originally selected by the Florida Panthers in the fourth round, 114th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

The Canucks are sending Dickinson to the Blackhawks, who recorded five goals and six assists with a minus-1 rating for Vancouver in the 2021-22 season.

With the trade, Vancouver saves $1.3 million this season and next.
