The Boston Bruins find themselves in a tight cap situation with only $429,000 remaining, even after trading away Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno this offseason. Amid this cap crunch, defenseman Matt Grzelcyk emerges as a potential candidate for a departure.

According to an NHL pro scout,
"Chatter is picking up more as I scout preseason games here... Teams are starting to see if maybe they have a young player that can make the jump or eat up more minutes. Look at what the kid [Mason] Lohrei did in Buffalo last night... I think he could be ready for the show."

While the status of Derek Forbort remains uncertain, there is growing interest in Grzelcyk. The scout suggests that the Chicago Blackhawks, with cap space to spare, could be a suitable destination. Grzelcyk's left-shot capabilities could bolster the Blackhawks' defensive lineup and powerplay.

As teams express early interest in Grzelcyk, it's evident that the defenseman has garnered attention. At 29 years old, he may not align with Chicago's rebuilding phase, but his potential impact in addressing the Blackhawks' defensive needs is noteworthy.
