Now that Jakob Chychrun is healthy and back playing big minutes for the Arizona Coyotes along with putting up a solid 11 points (3g, 8a) in 12 games. Everyone is wondering when Chychrun will be traded?
He will likely not be traded until the new year as the NHL roster freeze takes affect from midnight on December 19 to midnight on December 27.
What is the latest on the Jakob Chychrun trade front?
Matt Marchese was on the Jeff Marek Show and stated the Buffalo Sabres as a dark horse contender to make a Chychrun trade. He feels Chychrun would be a compliment to Owen Power and Rasmus Dahlin along with having the assets to make a trade with the Coyotes.
Elliotte Friedman chimed in on the Jakob Chychrun rumors stating the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues have contacted the Yotes about a Jakob Chychrun trade.
Friedman went on to say in his piece that the NHL team that makes the most sense is the Florida Panthers but they likely do not have the assets to pull off a trade. Friedman believes the Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers are out of the Chychrun sweepstakes.
The asking price for Chychrun is still two equivalent first round picks.
