After weeks of speculation, Andrew Ladd found a new home on Thursday evening.

The Winnipeg Jets captain was dealt back to the Blackhawks in a multi-player trade.

Also headed to Chicago are forward Matt Fraser and defenseman Jay Harrison.

The Jets landed Marko Dano, the Blackhawks 2016 first-round pick and a conditional selection at the 2018 draft.

During the first intermission of Thursday’s Jets-Stars game, Blake Wheeler and GM Kevin Cheveldayoff discussed the move.
