dan hamhuis nhl trade deadline rumors

The Washington Capitals are looking to add a veteran defenseman before the 2016 NHL trade deadline. Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik has been injured 33 games this season, and they are looking for insurance on their blueline.

Chuck Gormley of CSN Mid Atlantic says that the Capitals are interested in Vancouver Canucks Dan Hamhuis, who played under coach Barry Trotz in Nashville for six years. Hamhuis is injured and expected to return to the lineup in the next couple of weeks.

Hamhuis, who has a no-movement clause, is a pending UFA coming off a $4.5 million cap hit contract. The Canucks are likely to deal Dan Hamhuis before the trade deadline in return for a first round pick and a prospect.
