The Oilers traded goalie Jason LaBarbera to the Blackhawks on Saturday for future considerations. He will be assigned to the American Hockey League's Rockford IceHogs.

The 33-year-old LaBarbera appeared in seven games this season with Edmonton, going 1-3-0 with a 3.28 goals-against average.

LaBarbera has a 60-73-19 career record with six shutouts and a 2.86 GAA.

Maple Leafs forward suspended

Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL for an illegal check to St. Louis forward Vladimir Sobotka's head. Clarkson was assessed a minor penalty Thursday night in Toronto's loss in St. Louis. Clarkson, a repeat offender under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, will forfeit $128,049.
