BREAKING: Potential Move Looms for Jake DeBrusk Amid Trade Rumours

Published August 20, 2023 at 6:19

The ongoing NHL offseason has sparked a wave of trade speculations involving the Boston Bruins and the Calgary Flames.

Center Search Heats Up

With the recent retirements of key players, Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, the Bruins have been actively exploring trade options to bolster their center position.

Lindholm's Potential Move

Elias Lindholm's name has been linked to potential trades, but signs suggest he might continue with the Calgary Flames rather than joining the ranks of the traded.

Targeting Mikael Backlund

Sources suggest that the Bruins are showing interest in Mikael Backlund, a center from the Flames, as part of a trade deal involving Jake DeBrusk's return to Calgary.

DeBrusk's Trade Speculations

Trade rumors continue to circulate around Jake DeBrusk, despite his improved performance in the previous season, raising questions about his future with the Bruins.

The Trade Scenario

According to recent buzz, a speculated trade could see Jake DeBrusk heading to Calgary in exchange for Mikael Backlund, who would come with 25% salary retention, along with a 3rd-round draft pick in the 2024 draft. The draft pick sweetens the deal due to Backlund's age at 34.

While DeBrusk's contributions to the Bruins have been notable, the team's quest for a center makes Backlund a potential solution, highlighting the dynamic and unpredictable nature of the NHL trading landscape.
