The Daily: Bruins Covet Noah Hanifin; Edvinsson Still Surging



noah hanifin, calgary flames

The Boston Bruins, looking for defensive help, are at the front of the line when it comes to interest in Calgary Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin. He is a Boston native and played at Boston College.

TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reported the Flames and Hanifin were close on a deal that would pay him an average of $7.5 million over eight years. But Hanifin decided to halt contract talks after the Flames pulled their offer. It’s still possible the Flames could sign Hanifin for the eight years and trade him.

Bruins general manager Don Sweeney has been dissatisfied with the team’s defensive play of late.

The Flames are open for business. They have already moved defenseman Nikita Zadorov, and they also could move forward Elias Lindholm and defenseman Chris Tanev. Each of those players can be a UFA this summer.
