NHL trade rumors are circulating that Dallas Stars defenceman John Klingberg has requested a trade. This should come as no surprise and NHL rumors were going around last month that the Stars and Klingberg could not agree to a contract extension.
The Carolina Hurricanes have already reached to the Stars about his availability. This is no word on what other teams would be interested in a Klingberg trade.
The problem Dallas has with trading Klingberg right now is the team is fighting for a playoff spot and might decide to keep him as their own rental. Klingberg would rather be traded but it is a wait and see situation for Klingberg and the Stars.
Klingberg does not own a no-trade clause and has a cap-friendly salary cap hit of $4.25 million.
