Which NHL teams are likely to trade next?

  • September 24, 2021

By Chris NicholsThe Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets will likely trade defenseman Alexander Wennberg and forward Niklas Kronwall, according to ESPN’s Craig Custance.

Custance reports that the Blue Jackets, who have the worst record in the NHL, have a player to acquire for the two players, which could mean that the Jets will trade Kronwall and/or Wennbeers for Wennbergers.

The Blue Jackets have been linked to Wennberger all season, as Custance noted.

The 27-year-old defenseman is currently the leading scorer on the Blue Jacket defense corps.

He is expected to be a restricted free agent next summer, and Custance writes that the team will be able to use a “bonus” on him to help offset a salary cap hit that could be high in the $6.8 million range.

The Jets are not expected to trade Kronwals, Custance reports.

Kronwall is one of the top blue-chip prospects in the game, but he has struggled to find the net in Winnipeg this season.

The 24-year old Wennnerger has not played in the AHL this season due to a knee injury.

He has appeared in three games with the Blue Comets, posting three points (1-1-3) and a plus-1 rating.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound forward has played in 67 games with four goals and 26 points (13-20-37) this season, including a goal and an assist.

The Winnipeg Jets were tied for third in the Western Conference last season with a 56-23-9 record.
