Surprise Development: the Canes Put a Big Name on the Trade Market and the Montreal Canadiens should Inquire About Teuvo Teravainen

As part of his most recent "tour of the big rumors circulating in the NHL offices right now", renowned Sportsnet insider, Elliotte Friedman, let us in on something big.

It's really surprising, but the Carolina Hurricanes have just put one of their big names on the trade market.

They really want to make room (on the payroll and in the lineup) to add Erik Karlsson or Vladimir Tarasenko, two players they would be close to acquiring according to solid sources.

So, Teuvo Teravainen would be available on the trade market! And the Canes are already discussing with teams for a transaction.



Of course, we should remember that Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens have room on their payroll to make such a trade. (one of the few teams in this position)

The Canes, who want to quickly trade Teravainen to be able to sign a player, does that sound familiar?

Obviously, we should remember that the Flames wanted exactly to quickly trade Sean Monahan last season to be able to sign Nazem Kadri.

Will Kent Hughes do it again? It could be very interesting.

Teuvo has a contract of $5.4M per year until summer 2024

The Canadiens could follow the example of last summer with Sean Monahan, as Alex Desrosiers mentions.

Teravainen, 28 years old, was a 1st round pick in 2012. He amassed about forty points, in 68 games last season, but 65 points in 77 games the previous season. (406 points in 594 career games)

He's solid!
