With the NHL Trade Deadline approaching, speculation is rising about potential trades to acquire future assets for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Chicago Blackhawks Have Reportedly Placed Tyler Johnson On The Trading Block

One player under consideration for a trade is Tyler Johnson, a two-time Stanley Cup winner who is in the final year of his contract with the Blackhawks. According to Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now, a league source has confirmed that Tyler Johnson will soon be on the move, and that he could be a potential fit with the Bruins:

"An NHL executive source has confirmed to Boston Hockey Now that the Chicago Blackhawks are letting it be known that center Tyler Johnson will be available on the NHL trade market. The 33-year-old, 5-foot-8, 185-pound pivot is in the final season of a seven-year, $35 million cap hit. Per our friends at Puckpedia, Johnson has accumulated $2,005,209 of his $5 million salary cap hit this season. Johnson has seven goals and four assists in 34 games this season."

Tyler Johnson Linked To The Boston Bruins

With seven goals and four assists in 34 games this season, Johnson could be a potential fit for the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins, currently leading the Atlantic Division, might benefit from adding a right-handed center with championship experience, especially after the retirement of Patrice Bergeron. The potential acquisition of Johnson is seen as a reasonable move for Bruins GM Don Sweeney.

Should the Bruins target a player like Johnson for their roster needs?
