The Calgary Flames seem prepared to part ways with defenseman Noah Hanifin, and reports suggest that the 27-year-old already has made up his mind on where he would like to sign his new contract.


Insider Leaks Where Noah Hanifin Wants To End His Career



According to insider Frank Seravalli, Hanifin's camp has indicated to the Flames his desire to join the Tampa Bay Lightning in the long term, whether through a trade or free agency..

This aligns with his reported wish to return to the United States. However, with the trade deadline approaching, it's unlikely that the Lightning possess the assets to outbid other interested teams.

This could impact Hanifin's trade value. While teams vying for a Stanley Cup this year may see him as a valuable addition regardless of his future, teams eyeing him as a long-term asset might hesitate. Nonetheless, Hanifin's departure from the Flames seems imminent, and his destination could shape the NHL landscape as the playoffs approach.
