Report: Minnesota offered Jason Zucker to 5 different teams

According to Minnesota Wild insider Mike Russo, Minnesota has offered Jason Zucker to 5 different teams to see if a trade would go through. The teams mentioned are the Calgary Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins, Arizona Coyotes, Vancouver Canucks and the Vegas Golden Knights.

It's no secret that the Minnesota Wild have been trying to part ways with Jason Zucker unsuccessfully since the trade deadline. And according to Wild insider Mike Russo, a trade was almost complete twice, but for some reason things were nixed.

The first team with whom the Wild almost pulled off a trade was with the Calgary Flames. Minnesota offered Jason Zucker to the Flames for Michael Frolik and Sam Bennett. The trade was almost pulled off but was nixed for some reason. Calgary GM Brad Treliving was less than pleased.

The next is with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Minnesota offered Jason Zucker and Viktor Rask for Phil Kessel and Jack Johnson. The trade was a done deal until Phil Kessel shut it down with his modified no trade clause that was implemented in his contract.

Now according to Russo, Minnesota GM Paul Fenton offered Zucker to the Arizona Coyotes for Christian Dvorak. Arizona declined but countered with Christian Fischer, Fenton then declined the counter offer.

Russo stated that Fenton offered Zucker to Vegas for Jonathan Marchessault and George McPhee declined the trade.

Now probably the worst possible trade offer out of the four previously mentioned. Russo claims that Fenton offered Zucker alone to the Vancouver Canucks for none other than Brock Boeser. Vancouver GM Jim Benning reportedly laughed at Paul Fenton and hung up the phone.
