The San Jose Sharks are not only sellers at the NHL trade deadline but they appear to be buyers.
After the blockbuster trade of Timo Meier yesterday, NHL trade rumors are making the rounds that Sharks GM Mike Grier is interested in making a trade for Nashville Predators defenseman Dante Fabbro.
Dante Fabbro headed to San Jose?
Jeff Marek was on the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast Saturday night and the panel was discussing Nashville Predators defenseman Dante Fabbro.
Marek went on to say in his TV hit that Nashville is open for business and the three untouchables on the team are Roman Josi, Juuse Saros and Filip Forsberg.
Marek states the San Jose Sharks are the leading contender for Dante Fabbro. Sharks head coach David Quinn coached Fabbro at Boston University and wants Fabbro part of the team. Fabbro is set to be an RFA at the end of the season with a current Predators salary cap hit of $2.4 million.
Fabbro, 24, was drafted 17th overall by the Nashville Predators in the 1st round of the 2016 NHL entry draft. Currently over a career that spans 5 seasons, he has a total 56 points in 228 games played, and 1 playoffs point in 14 games played.
