The Daily: Flames Will Soon Trade Hanifin; NBA Loves Yzerman?

The Calgary Flames and Noah Hanifin’s representative are not confirming it, but Sportsnet hockey insider Elliotte Friedman confirmed that the Calgary Flames defenseman will be traded before the NHL trade deadline on  March 8.

Some Canadian teams are interested but Friedman says it will likely be a deal with one of the American-based suitors because they have a better chance of signing Hanifin. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Trevor Neufeld has all of the Hanifin details in his story for Calgary Hockey Now.

Because Hanifin is a Boston native and a former Boston College player, it is believed he is interested in signing with Boston. Flames executive Dave Nonis has been scouting the Bruins.

Red Wings In Case You Missed It

  • Filip Zadina produced a career-best four points against the Calgary Flames recently.  But mostly he has settled in as a role player with the San Jose Sharks.
  • Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker was wearing a Steve Yzerman Red Wings jersey when he showed up to play in the NBA All-Star game.
  • The Red Wings will be the visitor next season when the Columbus Blue Jackets host an outdoor game at The Ohio State University.
