Vancouver Canucks insider hints at blockbuster draft day trade

Published June 14, 2024 at 11:36

The Vancouver Canucks have a lot of work to do this off-season, after surpassing expectations in the 2023-24 NHL season. Filip Hronek will be an interesting case.

Filip Hronek, acquired by the Vancouver Canucks from the Detroit Red Wings last year for a first and a second round pick, was a great fit for their team, mostly next to captain Quinn Hughes. Unfortunately, the cost to retain Filip Hronek is high, as he is reportedly demanding over $8 million per season on a long-term contract.

This has thus led to several trade rumours, and now Vancouver Canucks insider Satiar Shah has provided a timeline:

I'm not going to be as forceful as saying he's guaranteed to be traded by the draft if he doesn't sign, but I'd say there's a really good chance that a trade happens at the draft if he doesn't sign an extension, Shah said.

If the Vancouver Canucks hit arbitration with Hronek, it may royally screw them over, as the case in arbitration will likely favour Filip Hronek's incredible 2023-24 season for salary.

All of this considered, be ready to see Filip Hronek change teams for the second time in a year very soon.
