nhl trade rumors 2015 arizona coyotes

As the 2015 NHL trade deadline draws closer, the Chicago Blackhawks are looking to acquire Antoine Vermette from the Arizona Coyotes. Vermette, who is a versatile center, is a good fit for the Blackhawks. He is 55% at winning faceoffs this season and can play on the penalty kill and power play. He has 10 goals and 25 points, which leads his team.

The Coyotes stated they do not plan on resigning Vermette because he is going to demand around $6 million per season as an unrestricted free agent. The Blackhawks would need to send significant salary back to the Coyotes in order for a trade to happen. The Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues and Detroit Red Wings are also interested in acquiring Antoine Vermette.
