Jakob Chychrun frustrated on the Senators home arena
Jakob Chychrun frustrated as trade rumors persist in Ottawa. Will Senators star be moved in the offseason?

It looks like the Jakob Chychrun saga in Ottawa is far from over. The Senators defenseman remains in limbo as trade talks will likely continue into the offseason. Despite expressing his desire to stay in Ottawa, and the Senators’ insistence they aren’t actively shopping him, sources indicate Chychrun is bracing for another round of trade rumors during the offseason.

Ian Mendes of The Athletic recently reported on Chychrun’s frustration with the lingering trade speculation. The talented blueliner acknowledges it’s his contract situation fueling the trade rumors. His current deal has a single season remaining, making him a prime target for teams looking to bolster their roster for next season.

Jakob Chychrun: Trade Rumors Won’t Go Away

Chychrun has been vocal about his desire to be part of the Senators’ future. General manager Steve Staios has also made his intentions clear, stating they aren’t pushing to trade Chychrun and would like to explore a contract extension. But in the business of hockey, where there’s a potential blockbuster deal to be made, intentions can quickly change.

So, what’s the bottom line on Jakob Chychrun’s future in Ottawa? It’s anyone’s guess at this point. While both player and team have stated their preference for him to stay, the reality is that with an expiring deal, his name is likely to dominate trade headlines until he either signs a new contract or is shipped out of town.
