Retired Chicago Blackhawks winger Eric Daze and his wife, Guylaine, have upgraded in Hinsdale, selling their six-bedroom, 3,206-square-foot American four-square house in Hinsdale for $1.8 million and paying $2.35 million for a four-bedroom, 5,302-square-foot house nearby.

The Canadian-born Daze, 40, played for the Blackhawks for his entire career, from 1994 until retiring in 2005 amid chronic back problems.

Longtime homeowners in Hinsdale, the Dazes paid $1.68 million in 2011 for the house they just sold. Built in 2011, the house has 5-1/2 baths and two fireplaces.

The house that the Dazes bought, built in 1992, has 4-1/2 baths and three fireplaces.

Both transactions closed on Jan. 29, and both properties were only listed in the real estate multiple listing service at the time the sales occurred, suggesting that both homes had been informally listed. In addition, public records indicate that the pair of deals actually amounted to a house swap of sorts. The same couple who sold the Dazes the larger house were the buyers of the Dazes' now-former house.

Dawn McKenna of Coldwell Banker, who represented Daze in both transactions, declined to comment.
