LATEST | Chychrun hints he might have been traded

Published February 4, 2023 at 10:11

With the NHL trade deadline coming up on March 3rd many general managers will have to decide if they are going to be sellers, or for those looking to contend to go all in and make a big move on deadline day.

The Canucks already made a big move by trading away their captain Bo Horvat to the New York Islanders. Horvat was expected to be the top player available at the deadline day. There is now speculation that one of the top defencemen is now going to be taken off the trade list.

I'm talking about Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun. The 24-year-old has been on the trade block for the past two trade deadlines, but hasn't been moved. It's not because of talent but more due to the Coyotes insane compensation price. The level of play he displays, his team-friendly contract and his age all make him an extremely valuable asset.

However, Chychrun might have just given us a subtle hint that he's about to be moved, as he has removed the Arizona Coyotes from his social media accounts.

We can't confirm that he's been traded yet so take this with a grain of salt, but it seems odd that if Chychrun wasn't going to be traded, why remove the Coyotes from his social media accounts?

Jakob Chychrun has managed 25 points through 34 games in a deprived Coyotes offense and is well-known for his two-way game. He's under contract at $4.9M for the remainder of this year and the following two.
