Will Jack Eichel be traded this off-season? The New York Rangers, LA Kings and Boston Bruins are all interested.

The big question is, will Jack Eichel be traded this off-season? Earlier in the year NHL trade rumors had New York Rangers and LA Kings interested in making a trade for Eichel.

Both team has the assets and cap space to take on Eichel’s big contract. The question is, does Eichel want to be traded?

TSN’s Darren Dreger is reporting Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams said last month that Eichel had not requested a trade, though the centre openly discussed a “disconnect” with the team regarding how to treat his neck injury.

“I’ve been a bit upset about the ways things have been handled since I’ve been hurt,” Eichel said on May 10. “There’s been a bit of a disconnect between myself and the organization.”

Normally when a player states a displeasure with the way an injury was treated is usually a more subtle way of telling the team, I want to be traded.

Besides the Kings and Rangers showing interest in Eichel, NHL Rumors have the Boston Bruins interested, though they lack the top-end assets the Kings and Rangers can offer.
