CHICAGO – Brandon Saad recorded a hat trick to spark the Blackhawks' 6-1 preseason win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night at the United Center.
The Hawks reacquired Saad, a member of their Stanley Cup-winning teams in 2012-13 and 2014-15, in a draft day deal from Columbus, which sent Artemi Panarin to the Blue Jackets.
Ryan Hartman, Brent Seabrook and Alex DeBrincat also scored for the Hawks.
Hawks starting goalie Corey Crawford made 30 saves in the first two periods. Collin Delia played the third and stopped all eight shots he faced.
Michael Rasmussen scored Detroit's lone goal.
Petr Mrazek allowed all six Hawks goals on 40 shots.
