The Bruins could have considered a right-handed defenseman, but they didn’t Yaakov Chykhrun

Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: Calls were made to see if the Boston Bruins could be interested in Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chykrun if the price is right.

“I think depending on their health in the coming weeks or months, Grzelczyk or Karlo could be in play for a guy like Chychrun,” one NHL executive told Boston Hockey Now on Tuesday. “Can you imagine a left side with — let’s say they don’t trade Grzelczyk — Lindholm, Chychrun and him on the left?”

If the Bruins explore the trade market for defensemen, it will be for a right-handed defenseman, not a left-handed one.

One NHL scout said he heard before the season that the Bruins were looking for right-handed defensemen.

John Klingberg could be a trade asset for the Ducks, or perhaps the parties are interested in another deal

Pierre Lebrun from Athletic.: Anaheim Ducks GM Pat Verbeek when asked about the post offseason trade of free-agent quarterback John Klingberg.

“It was kind of a mutual search,” Verbeek said. “I tried before (in free agency to sign Klingberg). But I wasn’t looking for a seven-year contract. But I think he was looking for an opportunity to play with some good players and be able to produce so he could kind of set himself up (for his next contract).

“What I was looking for was someone who could show the young guys the offensive side of the game – Jamie Drysdalethings like that.”

If the Ducks aren’t in playoff contention, Klingberg could be a trade asset at the deadline. As Verbeek pointed out, perhaps both sides would be interested in another contract.
