TRADE BOARD
TOP 30
A
VAILABLE PLAYERS
As of June 17, 2017 :: 2:25pm ET

The trade deadline isn't the only wild trading season in the NHL anymore. The NHL Draft offers teams another opportunity to complete significant roster moves and trades. Add in this season's expansion draft and June could be an extremely active month.

We've put together the top 30 players being talked about within the trade market -- we've excluded Chicago's Marcus Kruger, as the Blackhawks have already reportedly agreed to move him to Vegas. This page will be updated regularly, and some players may climb or fall off the list, while others may be added. Teams reportedly showing interest, through media reports and league sources, will also be added and adjusted as more information becomes available.
 

No. Player Player Info. Potential Suitors
1
Matt Duchene, C/LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $6,000,000  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Everyone is expecting the Avs to move Duchene this June, and we're likely to see a deal take place around the NHL Draft.

 
2
Sami Vatanen, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,875,000  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

With the expansion draft on the horizon, the Ducks are trying to move Vatanen before protection lists are due, as TFP first reported, but he may end up in Vegas.

3
Jonathan Drouin, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  22
Status:   Traded to Montreal 

Tampa is exploring all of its options, and that includes entertaining calls for Drouin. The Bolts want a top-pair defenseman for him.

4
Jordan Eberle, RW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $6,000,000  Age:  27
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Like Duchene, everyone believes Eberle will be dealt this month, as well. Could this finally be the summer it happens?

5
Jonas Brodin, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,200,000  Age:  23
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Wild is in a similar position to Anaheim, as they'd like to make a move before the expansion draft and Brodin's name continues to pop up.

6
Niklas Hjalmarsson, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,100,000  Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Chicago has to shed some salary and moving an impact player is a real possibility, with Hjalmarsson's name making the rounds across the NHL.

7
Gabriel Landeskog, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,571,429  Age:  24
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Avs still don't have to trade Landeskog, but if the right offer comes along, they'll seriously consider it. Could he AND Duchene get dealt? We'll see.

8
Tyler Johnson, C
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Drouin all need new deals and the Bolts can't afford all of them. While Drouin is higher up on the list, Johnson could very well move.

9
Tyson Barrie, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,500,000 Age:  25
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Even though Duchene and Landeskog could move, if the right offer presented itself, the Avs would be willing to trade Barrie.

10
Evander Kane, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,250,000  Age:  25
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

It sounds like the Sabres' new management regime doesn't view Kane as a long-term asset and are exploring the market on him.

11
Alex Galchenyuk, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  23
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Before Montreal goes nuts, there are no guarantees the Habs move Galchenyuk, but GM Marc Bergevin is willing to listen to offers.

-
12
Derek Stepan, C
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $6,500,000  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Stepan may be exposed by the Rangers in the expansion draft and New York seems willing to explore the possibility of moving him and his cap hit.

13
Ryan Murray, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,825,000  Age:  23
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The depth the Blue Jackets have on the blueline allows them to dangle Murray as trade bait. If Columbus can move him for a top center, they will.

14
Marc-Andre Fleury, G
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,750,000  Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

With back-to-back Cups, Penguins management has to quickly shift its focus and figure out a new home for Fleury, who has a 12 team no-trade list.

15
Ilya Kovalchuk, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  N/A  Age:  34
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Devils are more than willing to trade Kovalchuk, and they have options. It's possible things get firmed up this month leading towards July.

16
Chris Tanev, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,450,000  Age:  27
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Canucks are open to moving Tanev, but the price has to be right. Vancouver GM Jim Benning is willing to explore options.

 
17
Travis Hamonic, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,857,142 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Isles are looking hard for a top-line winger to play alongside John Tavares and could use Hamonic as part of a package for a top tier scorer.

18
Alex Killorn, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  27
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

If the Bolts move one of Drouin or Johnson, there is still a chance they move out Killorn or Ondrej Palat, thanks to the salary cap.

19
Jake Muzzin, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,000,000  Age:  28
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Muzzin's name is circling around the NHL, but the Kings aren't giving him away by any chance -- they want a top-line winger with term on his deal.

20
Mike Smith, G
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,666,667  Age:  35
Status:   Traded to Calgary 

Plenty of teams are looking to upgrade their game between the pipes and Smith is a target for some clubs.

21
Matt Dumba, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,550,000  Age:  22
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

It might come as a surprise to many to see the Wild move out Dumba, but they're willing to listen given the expansion draft coming up.

 
22
Alec Martinez, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,000,000  Age:  29
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

If the right deal pops up and the Kings can move Martinez instead of Muzzin in order to acquire a top-line scoring winger, LA will take a hard look.

23
James van Riemsdyk, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,250,000  Age:  28
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

It's going to take a very significant offer for the Leafs to part with JVR, but it's not out of the realm of possibility for them to make a move -- the right move for them.

24
Nathan Beaulieu, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  24
Status:   Traded to Buffalo 

Beaulieu could be packaged for some help up front prior to the expansion draft if the Canadiens can find the right trading partner.

25
Calvin de Haan, D
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Isles could risk losing de Haan for nothing in the expansion draft or package him for help up front. He's up for grabs.

-
26
Ondrej Palat, LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

As we've outlined above, Palat could be on the move, a casualty of the salary cap, so to speak. But nothing is set in stone.

27
Robin Lehner, G
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  RFA  Age:  35
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Buffalo is exploring its goaltending options and if they get their hands on another No.1, they'll look to move Lehner.

-
28
Dustin Brown, RW/LW
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,875,000  Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

With a change in management and behind the bench, LA's mindset might be different when it comes to moving Brown. LA will listen, but is happy to keep him.

-
29
Jimmy Howard, G
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,291,667  Age:  33
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

One of Howard or Mrazek could be shipped out of Detroit if the right offer appears ahead of the expansion draft...

30
Petr Mrazek, G
2017-18 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,000,000  Age:  25
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

...yeah.
