NHL Trade Rumors: Dan Hamhuis Linked To Bruins As Canucks Shop D-Man

1,773

The Boston Bruins enter Monday’s NHL trade deadline with a need for blue-line depth, and one player who could fill that need is Vancouver Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis.

The 33-year-old veteran, who can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, has been linked to the Bruins by Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun and TSN’s Darren Dreger hours before the 3 p.m. ET deadline.

Hamhuis would have to approve any deal because of the no-trade clause in his contract.

Hamhuis has tallied six points in 37 games this season. His HERO chart shows he still plays at a second-pairing level or better in most facets.
