The Vancouver Canucks have been much better than many people expected they would be this season. Despite their success, they're still looking to bolster their defensive depth and one name that keeps surfacing on the trade market is Connor Garland.

Canucks Still Looking To Move Garland

Early this season there were reports that Conor Garland was looking to get out of Vancouver. The former Arizona Coyote has struggled to find his footing with the Canucks since being acquired.

There is word this afternoon that Vancouver has granted Conor Garland permission to talk to other teams about a potential trade. Tight cap situation, see if there's a better fit around the NHL.

Since the request things have been relatively quiet on the Garland market. Now that seems to be changing as reports of multiple teams interested in Garland have surfaced.

Garland Drawing Heavy Interest From Multiple Teams

New reports have indicated that two teams have interest in pursuing a Garland trade. According to NHL Trade Rumors both the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals are looking to trade for the winger.

Both teams are struggling to score this season and could use a boost. The Capitals are contenders and could be willing to give up more assets. The Blackhawks are still rebuilding and could be a perfect place for Garland to get big minutes and turn his career around.

Both Washington and Chicago would be better landing spots than his current situation in Vancouver. As we get past the holidays expect the Garland trade talks to heat up.
