Defenceman Brian Campbell has agreed to waive his no-trade clause in order to go to the Florida Panthers.

The Chicago Blackhawks sent Campbell to the Panthers in exchange for forward Rostislav Olesz.

Campbell still has five years left in his current contract at $7.1 million per year.

The 32-year-old defenceman had 27 points and was a plus-28 last year for the Blackhawks. The former sixth-round draft pick has 312 points in 11 seasons in the league.

Olesz scored six goals and 17 points in 41 games with Florida last season. The 25-year-old former first-round draft pick missed a number of games due to injury, including a 17-game stint on the injured list with a broken finger, and the final 21 games of the season with a knee injury.

Olesz has a no-trade clause that kicks in on July 1.
