Former Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Adrian Aucoin and his wife, Caroline, on Aug. 3 sold a five-bedroom newly built house in Hinsdale for $2.875 million.

During a 17-year National Hockey League career, Aucoin skated for the Blackhawks from 2005 until 2007. Now 43, he works in player development for the Blackhawks.

The Aucoins paid $1.2 million in mid-2014 to buy the land that holds the house they just sold. The home they had built has an octagonal cupola, board and batten siding, a cedar shake roof, 6-1/2 baths, 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, 9-foot ceilings on the second floor, a study, a sunroom and a lower level with an entertainment room, an exercise room and a sports bar. Outside on the property are a circular driveway, an 18-foot sport court and a three-car garage.

The house was listed in January for $3.299 million.

Listing agent Dawn McKenna declined to comment on the Aucoins' reasons for selling the house. However, they own two other properties nearby. One is a 4,163-square-foot house they purchased in 2005 for $2.15 million.

They also paid $875,000 last year for a 1,717-square-foot postwar ranch-style house in Hinsdale.
