Christian Dvorak is finally on his way out of Montreal, according to an NHL source

It's surprising, but despite the fact that it's almost August, there's still plenty of action in the National Hockey League.

For the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton are still on the lookout for a potential trade, knowing that the team has to make a move (by the start of the season) in order to sign Kirby Dach.

AN OBVIOUS CANDIDATE?

According to Jimmy Murphy (Montreal Hockey Now), who spoke with an NHL source, the next player to leave Montreal will be... Christian Dvorak.


"His name has been floating around since before the last trade deadline, but I'm hearing it more and more now. I don't see how Christian Dvorak will start next season with the Habs. There is a lot of smoke right now and with such a reasonable contract, many teams, especially the top contenders, are interested. Even after his poor start last year, teams were interested. Now that he has had a good end to the season, the interest has only increased. I can say that I know of at least three teams that have discussed Dvorak with Kent Hughes more than once and I am sure there are more. I don't think Hughes necessarily wants to trade him, but he needs to make room on his payroll." - NHL Source

Interesting!

We retain this:

"I don't see how Christian Dvorak will start next season with the Habs."

That says a lot! Recall that Dvorak was acquired less than a year ago, from the Arizona Coyotes, for a first round pick in 2022 + a second round pick in 2024.

Dvorak, 26, had 11 goals and 22 assists for 33 points in 56 games with the CH in 2021-22. He is signed for three more seasons at $4.45 million per year.

Is he the next one to be traded? What would you ask for in return?
