Former Chicago Blackhawk Niklas Hjalmarsson and his wife, Elina, on Monday sold a five-bedroom house in Lakeview's

Former defenseman and his wife, Elina, on Monday sold their five-bedroom, 4,600-square-foot brick and limestone house in Lakeview's Southport Corridor area for $2.27 million.

Hjalmarsson, who skated for the Blackhawks for 10 years, including for three titles, was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in late June.

Through a land trust, the couple had paid $2.32 million in 2015 for the three-story house, which was newly built at that time. They then paid $900,000 in mid-2016 for a side yard, which now has a sport court and synthetic turf.

In July, the couple listed the house and the side yard together for $3.199 million. Several weeks later, they listed the house itself for $2.3 million while offering the buyer the use of the side lot for two years free of charge, with an option to buy it after that.

Listing agent Alex Till of Baird & Warner confirmed that the sale was of the house only. He declined to comment on any aspect of the sale, including the buyers' identity or the eventual fate of the side lot.

Features in the house include five full baths, two half baths, a two-car heated garage, white oak floors with dark walnut stains, millwork, coffered ceilings, wainscoting, custom cabinetry and a whole house sprinkler system. The top level has an office or den with a wet bar, while the lower level has a rec room with radiant heat and a wet bar with a dishwasher and a wine cooler. The kitchen has Sub-Zero and Thermador appliances and a butler's pantry, while the master suite has walk-in closets, a steam shower and heated floors. Outside are front and rear roof decks, a paved patio with a fireplace and a garage deck with a pergola.

Public records do not yet identify the buyer, who was represented by Hayley Westhoff of @properties.
