If the Montreal Canadiens determine they need to bring in another center from outside the organization, they could find some assistance from the Winnipeg Jets.
With Alex Galchenyuk out indefinitely with a lower-body injury and David Desharnais getting knocked out of Tuesday night's game with an injury, the Habs could be forced to go after someone to fill the void.
While a trade is not believed to be imminent -- the Habs are going to reportedly call up a forward from the AHL -- GM Marc Bergevin could be looking at his options if he has to complete a trade for a center.
In his latest "30 Thoughts" column on Sportsnet.ca, Elliotte Friedman hints the Canadiens could go after Jets center Alexander Burmistrov.
Burmistrov is in the final year of his contract and TFP has reported multiple times since the start of the season that the club has made it known that they would be willing to move him for the right price.
The 25-year-old is making $1.55 million this season and can become a restricted free agent next summer.
Burmistrov's ice time has been limited this season, resulting in him tallying just two assists in 23 games.
