With TSN breaking the news that Vegas Golden Knights forward Max Pacioretty is available for trade, NHL trade rumors are now floating around that the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins and LA Kings all have interest in Pacioretty.
Boston Hockey now’s Joe Haggerty suggests the Bruins should take a run at the forward. He notes it could cost them winger Jake DeBrusk and perhaps defense prospect Urho Vaakanainen but Haggerty feels it would be a trade worth making considering Pacioretty’s production and where he’d slot in on the Bruins roster.
Pittsburgh Hockey Now reporter Dan Kingerski reports that multiple sources have said the Penguins are among the NHL clubs expressing interest in Pacioretty. Kingserski writes that GM Jim Rutherford recently circled back on Pacioretty and is waiting to hear back.
Joe Haggerty also is reporting that the LA Kings might be interested in revisiting a trade for Pacioretty, one they thought they had done back before he was moved from the Montreal Canadiens in 2018.
