According to NHL external Central Scouting consultant Maxim Guerin, it’s just a matter of time before Mike Hoffman is traded by the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs apparently want to rid themselves of his contract.
According to the information Guerin was given, four teams have inquired about Hoffman’s availability. Three of those teams are the Anaheim Ducks, the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Remember that on this very site, we had predicted that the Penguins were a likely destination for the Canadiens’ winger.
