Devils Daily: NHL Trade Freeze Approaches

Published

on

New Jersey Devils

The NHL Trade/Roster freeze is upon us. It takes effect Wednesday, Dec. 20, at midnight and runs until Thursday, Dec. 28. Many rumors are swirling, especially on the goaltending market, on potential movement around the league. The New Jersey Devils are amid those rumors as they’re potentially in the market for a goaltender, defenseman, or both.

Elsewhere, but similarly, Colorado is targeting a big-name center, can Philly acquire a star winger, and will Chicago sign a former All-Star who is a free agent?

Let’s do that hockey.

New Jersey Devils

The Athletic: Pierre LeBrun hits on four hot spots to monitor as the NHL Trade Freeze approaches, and New Jersey is one of them.

Philadelphia Flyers

Chicago Blackhawks
