Major trade proposal emerges that would send Jordan Harris to the western conference

Last week, news circulated on social media that the Montreal Canadiens were actively trying to trade Jordan Harris.

Following this, TVA Sports journalist Anthony Martineau asked Harris if he had discussed a possible trade with the club's management. Harris's response was unequivocal:

Jordan Harris confirmed to me yesterday that he and the CH management had no discussions regarding the possibility of a trade involving him.

"No. Nothing at all!"

A few days later, Harris's name was again buzzing in trade rumors. Once again, the source was not Montreal, but Calgary.

According to journalist James Johnson, the Flames are interested in the young Canadiens defenseman.

Johnson notes that the emergence of Jayden Struble, leading to Harris being increasingly left out, would make the CH's number 54 available. The defenseman, who has played in 37 of his team's 59 games, would be a great asset for the Flames, capable of playing on both sides and being relatively young (23 years old).

The journalist believes the Flames could move a young forward to get Harris. But who could interest the CH?

Being Kent Hughes, I would undoubtedly focus on Jakob Pelletier. Mentioned prominently in rumors during the Tyler Toffoli trade, he would be an excellent target.

Pelletier, 22 years old, was the 26th overall pick in the 2019 draft. He is in the last year of his entry-level NHL contract and has seen limited play in the big league over the past two seasons. However, he has amassed 9 points, including 3 goals, in 31 NHL career games. It's worth wondering if Craig Conroy would accept a 2nd round pick, in addition to Harris, for the Quebecer.

Harris is in the first year of a two-year contract valued at $2.8 million. Over 112 games in the NHL , he has accumulated 7 goals and 19 assists for a total of 26 points.
