The 2021 NHL Trade deadline on April 12 is now less than a month away. At least five NHL teams are out of playoff contention and everyone expects heavy NHL trade chatter to pick up this week.

Contending teams are starting to identify NHL trade targets and the belief is we could see some movement sooner than later. One complicating factor which could push teams to act sooner is the Canadian 14-day quarantine. As of now, there’s not much indication that the two-week quarantine for any NHL player acquired by a Canadian club will be lifted. Teams in the North Division need to get a head start if they want their acquired players to have enough time to get acclimated into the lineup before the regular season ends on May 8, or thereabouts. 

All eyes are turning to the Ottawa Senators. In the latest ‘Off The Record’, we take a look at one Senators player getting mentioned again in the NHL Trade chatter. And could money issues force one up-and-coming team to sell? as well as two American-based NHL teams to keep on an eye on as the deadline gets closer. 

Some Boston boys are front and center.
