BREAKING: A East Team Has Shown A Lot Of Interest In This Bruins Player

Published July 8, 2023 at 1:10 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly explored the option of acquiring Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in a potential NHL trade.

Insiders from the Penguins organization have disclosed that should the team fail to secure Erik Karlsson, general manager Kyle Dubas has been actively devising alternative plans.

Grzelcyk has emerged as a viable candidate for this contingency strategy, primarily due to his skill set as a left-handed puck-moving defenseman. Despite his shorter stature of 5-foot-9, he possesses exceptional hockey intelligence and impressive speed on the ice.

While Bruins GM Don Sweeney has expressed frustration regarding persistent trade rumors surrounding Grzelcyk, it has not deterred Dubas from expressing interest in the defenseman.

Grzelcyk, with one year left on his four-year contract, carries a reasonable salary cap hit of $3.687 million. In the previous season, he recorded 26 points (4 goals and 22 assists) in 75 games and maintained an impressive plus-46 rating.

Besides Grzelcyk, Sweeney has reportedly engaged in discussions involving other players like Linus Ullmark, Jeremy Swayman, Brandon Carlo, Derek Forbort, Jake DeBrusk, and Trent Frederic.

However, it is important to note that this does not necessarily indicate active shopping of these players by the Bruins but rather inquiries from other teams.
