There's news about a potential trade involving Josh Anderson

Published June 12, 2022 at 9:49

A few days ago, we reported that TSN's Frank Seravalli had recently published a list of 25 players who could be traded before the draft in July.

On this list, we find three players of the Habs: Jeff Petry, Shea Weber and forward Josh Anderson.

The presence of the CH number 17 may seem quite surprising, but we know that there were some rumors about him before the trade deadline and that Kent Hughes' phone rang a lot during this period.

But as my colleague Keven Mawn of reports, it looks like there's some news on this front.

Informant Marco D'Amico, who works for Montreal Hockey Now, mentioned in his most recent column, that indeed, there would be a lot of demands regarding Josh Anderson, but that Kent Hughes would be very greedy in his demands and unless he gets the moon in return for his services, the Habs will definitely keep their power forward.

Anderson has scored 19 goals in 69 games this season, but some experts believe that eventually he could become a regular 30-goal scorer in the NHL, having already scored 27 goals in 2018-2019 with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
