The Buffalo Sabres traded the negotiating rights to defenseman Steve Montador, a former Erie Otter, to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday in exchange for a 2012 or 2013 draft pick, the Sabres announced.

The seventh-round pick in 2012, which the Blackhawks acquired from the Florida Panthers on Monday in the Tomas Kopecky trade, is currently conditional to the Nashville Predators. If that pick isn’t available, the Sabres would receive the Panthers’ seventh-round selection in 2013.

Montador, 31, had 10 goals, 49 points and 158 penalty minutes in 151 games with the Sabres the past two seasons. He has 28 goals, 117 points and 762 penalty minutes in 519 games with the Calgary Flames, Panthers, Anaheim Ducks, Boston Bruins and Sabres from 2001-11. He had 12 goals, 62 points and 149 penalty minutes in 87 games with the Otters from 1997-99.
