Insider Pierre Lebrun has reported that Calgary Flames goaltender Jacob Markstrom is set to waive his no-trade clause.

Back in March, just before the NHL trade deadline, the Calgary Flames and New Jersey Devils were close to a deal that would have sent Flames goalie Jacob Markstrom to New Jersey. Although the trade didn't happen, NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reported that Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald planned to revisit the deal in the offseason.
«I believe the Devils have decided that Jacob Markstrom is going to be their goalie, they hope. If they don't get Markstrom done this week, they are going to wait to try to do it in the summer»

- Elliotte Friedman, March 2024

Now, TSN insider Pierre LeBrun reports that negotiations between the two teams have resumed, and Markstrom is willing to waive his no-trade clause to move to New Jersey.
"Those conversations with the Flames have taken up again. We know that those two teams almost had a deal done before the trade deadline earlier this season before March 8. It fell apart, but the Devils remain interested in Jacob Markstrom and as importantly, Jacob Markstrom has a full no-move, but my understanding is he's willing to go to New Jersey," LeBrun said Wednesday on SC with Jay Onrait.

"There are other teams now that weren't there on Markstrom before the trade deadline that have now entered the picture. The Flames are getting calls from multiple teams on Markstrom, not just from the Devils... At this point in time, there's still a difference of opinion on the return, on what it should cost the Devils to get Jacob Markstrom out of Calgary and the Flames are willing to be patient in terms of having a team meet their price."

The 34-year-old Markstrom has two years left on his contract, which pays him $6 million per season. Despite missing some time due to injury, he had another stellar season in Calgary, earning 23 wins in 48 games with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
