The Florida Panthers have traded forward Vincent Trocheck to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forwards Erik Haula, Lucas Wallmark, defender Chase Priskie and another prospect, according to Elliotte Friedman. https://twitter.com/FriedgeHNIC/status/1231960712047726598?s=20 The 26-year-old Trocheck has scored 10 goals and 36 points in 55 games this season. From an offensive standpoint, he's produced nearly identical totals to his output from last season, a season deemed to be a down one for the 26-year-old center. While the point-totals may not jump off the page, Trocheck has still been a very good player for the Florida Panthers and a change of scenery may help him round back into form. He would score 25 goals and 53 points in the 2015-16 season, 23 goals and 54 points in 82 games in the 2017-18 season and then set career-highs in goals (31), assists (44) and points (75) in the 2017-18 season. What's also important to note is that Trocheck comes to the Hurricanes...

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumor rundown, the Edmonton Oilers got hit with more bad injury news as their top defenseman has gone down. Meanwhile, the Montreal Canadiens top defenseman is defying all odds and has returned to practice. And, are the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs set to become sellers over the next three-to-four days? Edmonton Oilers Lose Oscar Klefbom, What Now?
