Elliotte Friedman reveals important new information about a potential trade involving Christian Dvorak

For the past few days, Christian Dvorak has been skating with his teammates and can even take checks. He seems to be very close to a return to the game as Mathieu Perreault was placed in the lineup earlier this Wednesday.


This return would coincide strongly with the approach of the trade deadline. By playing on Thursday and Saturday, the center could show that he is capable of helping a team in the final stretch of the season.

On this subject, Elliotte Friedman recently wondered if the Minnesota Wild might not be interested in the Canadien forward. He mentioned that the Wild already had their eyes on him before he was traded to Montreal.



Bill Guerin's only problem would be with the payroll for the next few years. The $4.45M annual salary for three more seasons could complicate a possible trade. It should be noted that the Wild will have nearly $12.75M in payroll in 2022-2023 following the acquisition of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.

Following this statement, Jeff Marek asked Friedman if the Calgary Flames could be a good option for Dvorak. The informant answered that it is not impossible because the Flames want to add a center.

Finally, according to Friedman, the teams interested in Dvorak are mostly in the West because they have seen him play with the Arizona Coyotes. The GMs of these teams know that he is much better than what he showed this season and are not worried about his future performance.


In 34 games this season, before getting injured, Dvorak had 7 goals and 9 assists for a total of 16 points. He maintained a 55.81% efficiency rate in the face-off circle and a -17 rating.
