NHL Rumors: Calgary Flames, and Nine Defensemen the Could be Traded at the Deadline

Eric Francis of Sportsnet: The Calgary Flames need to make some changes, and that likely needs to start with forward Johnny Gaudreau. He has a year left on his contract before becoming a UFA.

Gaudreau, along with Sean Monahan have struggled and have only nine combined even-strength goals.

Any big moves shouldn’t happen at the deadline but wait for the offseason.

Potential assets that could be moved

Sam Bennett – 24-year old pending RFA with arbitration rights.

David Rittich – 28-year old pending UFA may net a mid-to-late-round pick.
