The Daily: Canadiens Interested in Necas Trade; Danielson Blanked



Martin Necas, carolina Hurricanes

The NHL playoffs are still ongoing and yet we are already starting to hear trade chatter. MHN’s Marco D’Amico wrote today about the Montreal Canadiens perhaps getting in line to talk to the Carolina Hurricanes about Martin Necas.

Necas’ father has been saying his son wants to be traded. The Hurricanes, by the way, have not said they will trade him.

“A source close to the situation has confirmed that the Montreal Canadiens have checked in on Necas’ availability and that he would be high on their shortlist of players to acquire this summer,” D’Amico wrote.

Necas posted 24 goals and 53 points in 77 games this season, while adding four goals and nine points in 11 games in the playoffs for Carolina.

D’Amico also offered that the Habs would be interested in Nikolaj Ehlers if the Winnipeg Jets decide to move him.
