Stay up to date with all the NHL trade rumors ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline with our rumors and deal tracker

It’s that time of the NHL season. That’s right, it’s NHL trade rumors season. The NHL trade deadline is coming up on Feb. 26. It’s hard to sort through rumors and completed deals this time of year.

There are three sections to this post. “Rumors” will be for reports of teams being linked to certain players. This will also cover extensions for pending free agents. “Unofficial deals” will take care of anything that is reported as done, but has yet to be confirmed by the teams involved.
