BREAKING: Jake DeBrusk May Be On The Move Soon

Published August 20, 2023 at 6:02

The offseason has brought a flurry of NHL trade rumors involving the Calgary Flames and the Boston Bruins.

Center Search Sparks Speculation

Following the retirements of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, trade rumors have swirled around the Bruins' pursuit of a new center.

Lindholm's Link to Boston

Elias Lindholm's name has been tossed into the trade ring, but it appears he might stick with Calgary rather than being traded away.

Interest in Mikael Backlund

Reports indicate the Bruins are eyeing center Mikael Backlund as part of a potential trade involving Jake DeBrusk's return to Calgary.

Will DeBrusk Be On the Move?

Jake DeBrusk's time in Boston hasn't been without challenges. Trade rumors have persisted despite his improved performance last season.

The Proposed Trade

The rumored trade scenario involves sending Jake DeBrusk to Calgary in exchange for Mikael Backlund with 25% retention and a 3rd-round draft pick in 2024. The draft pick comes into play due to Backlund's age at 34.

While DeBrusk has been a productive player for the Bruins, the team's need for a center remains unfulfilled. With few options available, Calgary's Mikael Backlund emerges as a potential solution for the Bruins as the new season approaches.
