We are less than a week away from the NHL trade deadline and already, some teams have started to move. This is the case for the Colorado Avalanche who completed two transactions in the last few hours.

As for the Habs, the news about Ben Chiarot, who will be left out of Tuesday's game against the Arizona Coyotes, practically confirms that he will be traded shortly.

But another left-handed defenseman of the CH, who is less talked about, could also leave for other skies by March 21.

Like reports it Our colleague Alexandre Desrosiers, from the website Rumeursdetransaction.com, the journalist of The Athletic, Marc-Antoine Godin, believes that Brett Kulak would be likely to leave Montreal.

According to him, the Habs have great depth on the left side of the defense with Kaiden Guhle and Jordan Harris. We should not forget Alexander Romanov, who has played excellent field hockey since the arrival of Martin St-Louis.

Obviously, Kulak doesn't have the same value as Ben Chiarot, but if Kent Hughes could get his hands on a draft pick in return for Kulak, he could fill out his bank of picks for future drafts.

However, there are some rumors floating around about a possible contract extension for the Habs' number 77.

Will he still be a member of the Habs next week? We will know by March 21st.
