Just days away from the 2022 National Hockey League (NHL) Draft, the rumor mill is running at full steam.

Here are five players who could be traded during the two days of the amateur auction held in Montreal on July 7 and 8:

-Alex DeBrincat

In full reconstruction, the Chicago Blackhawks are currently listening to offers from other NHL teams for forward Alex DeBrincat. We bet that many of them want to get their hands on the man who scored 41 goals in 82 games last season.

According to Sportsnet, the Hawks turned down an offer that included two first-round picks and a prospect for the 24-year-old right-hander.

DeBrincat has one year left on his contract and will earn $6.4 million in 2022-23. The American could then become a restricted free agent.

-Jeff Petry

The general manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, could be very busy on the floor of the Bell Center. In addition to having 14 choices, the GM should try to get rid of one or more large contracts, including that of defender Jeff Petry.

The 34-year-old athlete has a deal worth $6.25 million a year, valid until the end of the 2024-2025 campaign.

Petry ties –

The full-back had a disappointing season last year. He amassed 27 points (6-21) in 68 games. The majority of his points were obtained after the dismissal of Dominique Ducharme and the arrival of Martin St-Louis.

According to the specialized website capfriendly.com, Petry has a clause in his contract which allows him to choose 15 teams to which he does not wish to be traded.

-John Gibson

Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson has been at the center of trade rumors for several years. Will the arrival of a new administration within the Californian club finally change the situation in his case?

The holder of a non-movement clause including a list of 10 teams to which he does not want to be traded, however, has just had one of his worst seasons in his career. In 56 games, he posted a .904 save percentage and a 3.19 goals-against average.

Several teams, including the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Edmonton Oilers, will be looking for a new goaltender.

-Sergei Bobrovsky

Speaking of goaltenders, the Florida Panthers are reportedly actively looking to get rid of Sergei Bobrovsky.

Last week, analyst Nick Kypreos claimed that general manager Bill Zito would be willing to keep 50% of the masked man’s staggering salary. Bobrovsky signed a seven-year deal, worth a total of $70 million, with the Panthers in July 2019. That leaves four seasons left on his contract.

The 33-year-old Russian is coming off his best statistical campaign since playing for the Panthers. He went 39-7-3 with a .913 save percentage and 2.67 goals-against average in 54 regular season games.

-JT Miller

The Vancouver Canucks wouldn’t take the chance of losing forward JT Miller without getting anything in return, who could become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2023.

The 29-year-old American was excellent last year, amassing 99 points in 80 games.

It would seem that the organization of British Columbia and the player would be far from finding a compromise concerning a contract extension.

In 2022-23, Miller will sign a five-year deal that pays him $5.25 million per season.
