As we all understand, the Canadiens could be sellers on the NHL alternate closing date. In today’s change rumors mill we are able to recognition at the hobby the New York Rangers have in Habs ahead Artturi Lehkonen.
Staple of The Athletic reviews NY Rangers GM Chris Drury has been in contact with his former boss Jeff Gorton regarding a Lehkonen alternate.
Staple went on to mention, Lehkonen is the sort of upgrade the Rangers would need now not just for now but for the lengthy haul. Lehkonen is a third-liner and penalty-kill guy who contributes on offense and doesn’t kill you defensively.
A Lehkonen trade will now not come cheap for the Rangers. He is 26, a pending RFA and is due a $2.3 million qualifying provide. He does no longer own a -trade clause so there might be no regulations on a change.
