The Hockey News: Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen is busy checking out the NHL trade market in hopes of finding help for his struggling club. Kekalainen seeks a top-two defenseman but expressed skepticism over landing such a blueliner this early in the season. Kekalainen is unwilling to part with promising youngsters like Alexander Wennberg and Zach Werenski. Winger Kerby Rychel was recently rumored to be available.

Ottawa Sun: Defenceman that are available for trade: St. Louis Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson is available, while the Tampa Bay Lightning might be willing to part with Braydon Coburn or Matt Carle.
