Vancouver Canucks Reportedly Taking Calls For Forward Andrei Kuzmenko According To Insider Elliotte Friedman

Insider Elliotte Friedman reported during Hockey Night In Canada that teams are inquiring about Vancouver Canucks forward Andrei Kuzmenko who's reduced ice time has sparked trade discussions.

«There are some conversations around him,» Friedman said on HNIC. «Other teams have called Vancouver saying, ‘what are you willing to do here.' They know the Canucks are always willing to clear cap room, so we'll see how that develops over time.»




The Canucks are once again open to clearing cap space. The 27 year old has 1 year left on his deal worth 5.5M and also has a 12 team no trade list which could make things difficult.


«There is no question that teams are asking Vancouver what their plans are with this particular player,» Friedman said.


Despite his 15 points in 24 games this season, Kuzmenko has been demoted to the 4th line and other teams have taken notice.
