With the NHL Draft just hours away, it appears that teams are taking another look at Montreal Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty.
Four teams kicked tires on Max Pacioretty today. Doesn't mean he'll be dealt today necessarily but teams beginning to show their hand as first round approaches...— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) June 22, 2018
Pierre LeBruin plainly states that this interest doesn’t mean the winger will be dealt today, or even at all, but there are clearly teams who are looking to acquire the winger. As for the Canadiens’ side of things, Marc Bergevin has been as vague and mysterious as ever in regards to his draft-day plans.
A trade can obviously come together in a instant, but as it stands right now, Pacioretty’s tenure in Montreal hasn’t come to a close just yet.
