If the San Jose Sharks make Tomas Hertl available for a trade, the Boston Bruins will have interest in the center.

There were NHL trade rumors earlier this offseason circulating around that the San Jose Sharks were quietly shopping Tomas Hertl and the Ottawa Senators had interest in a Hertl trade.

Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports there’s zero doubt the Boston Bruins will have interest in Hertl if he becomes a trade market option.

Haggerty went on to say, the real complication in a Hertl trade is his $5.625 million cap hit. Hertl will undoubtedly be looking for a big raise as he approaches unrestricted free agency following the season.

The Bruins would need to move Charlie Coyle ($5.25 million) to the Sharks in order to make the money work given that they currently have just $1.635 million in cap space after their NHL free agent spending frenzy.
