The clock is ticking.

Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson reportedly gave Arizona a Friday deadline to trade him to either the Boston Bruins or Vancouver Canucks — the only two teams he’ll accept a trade to. And, given the uncertainty surrounding Torey Krug’s free agency, the Bruins soon might be in need of a talented, two-way defenseman.

So, what’s the holdup?

Check out this report from TSN’s Darren Dreger:

Obviously, this is a situation worth monitoring through the end of the week.

Ekman-Larsson, 29, has emerged as one of the top two-way defensemen in the NHL. He is a 0.5-point-per-game player over the course of his 10-year career, all of which he has spent with the Coyotes.
