BREAKING: DeBrusk set to be traded for Bergeron's replacement

Published July 28, 2023 at 3:13 PM

With the departure of the legendary Patrice Bergeron, the Boston Bruins now face a critical need to strengthen their center position. In their quest to fortify the top-six, the club has set its sights on acquiring standout center Elias Lindholm.

However, securing Lindholm may come at a cost. According to a reliable hockey operations source, the Bruins might have to part ways with Jake DeBrusk to make the trade feasible. The team seeks a scoring winger to fill the void left by Tyler Toffoli's departure.

While DeBrusk had an exceptional season, notching 27 goals and 50 points in 64 games, the Bruins' need for a center presents a challenging dilemma for General Manager Don Sweeney. The risks of sacrificing DeBrusk to acquire Lindholm must be carefully weighed.

Moreover, THW writer Rob Couch speculates on the possibility of Trent Frederic being a potential catalyst in the Lindholm trade. Further moves involving players like Matt Grzelcyk or Derek Forbort could also be in the cards to accommodate Calgary's deep defensive lineup. The Bruins face tough decisions as they navigate the offseason and reshape their roster for the upcoming season.
