Updated NHL Trade Bait Tracker: Hampus Lindholm cracks the top 10
We’ve updated our NHL Trade Bait Tracker for the upcoming NHL Trade Deadline with just FOUR days to go before the deadline.
The top 35 NHL Trade Targets are ranked here for the March 21 deadline date.
Since we updated the list on March 16, there’s been more changes after the Montreal Canadiens traded Ben Chiarot to the Florida Panthers. Plus the Seattle Kraken traded Calle Jarnkrok. Both players have been removed.
Hampus Lindholm of the Ducks has skyrocketed into the top 10 with the gap between the Ducks and him on a new deal too far to bridge. We also added the Blackhawks’ Dominik Kubalik and Stars’ Alexander Radulov to the list. Several other players were moved down, like John Klingberg after his GM said he was basically off the board.
This list will be updated again tomorrow as there should be more trades later today and early into tomorrow. Where will Claude Giroux land? Is it really the Florida Panthers or will the Colorado Avalanche work themselves back in the sweepstakes? We will learn soon enough.
