No contract talks between Coyotes, Hanzal
TheFourthPeriod.com

Contract talks between the Arizona Coyotes and Martin Hanzal seem to be nonexistent, and a trade involving the big centerman appears more likely with each passing day.

Hanzal, 29, is making $3.5 million in salary this season, though his cap hit is $3.1 million, and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

If a deal is not reached by the March 1 trade deadline, the Coyotes are expected to move him.

Hanzal's agent, Craig Oster, confirmed to TFP that have been "no recent discussions" with the Coyotes regarding Hanzal's contract.

The native of Pisek, Czech Republic, owns a limited no-trade clause and can list up to seven teams he won't accept a move to.

The Montreal Canadiens have been the team most publicly linked to Hanzal, but several other teams are believed to have already expressed interest in him, as well as Coyotes leading scorer Radim Vrbata, who can also become a UFA in the summer.

In 34 games with the Coyotes so far this season, Hanzal has registered nine goals and six assists for 15 points.

He matched a career-high with 40 points last season after registering 12 goals and a career-high 28 assists in 64 games.
