Trade Rumor: Minnesota Wild Shopping Forward

According to Mike Russo, the Minnesota Wild are likely going to trade forward Jordan Greenway at some point before next season. The young forward is a pending restricted free-agent and could price himself off the team.

Greenway was a second-round pick in 2015 and has only this season left on his deal that pays him $2.1 million per season. In 12 games this season Greenway has yet to score and has only recorded three assists. Certainly a disappointing start in Minnesota this season as he's coming off a year where he scored 32 points in 56 games and looked like he was becoming a strong power forward in the NHL.

The Wild currently sit tied for the division lead at 11-5-0 after a convincing win over the Dallas Stars. The team will be active this season making deals as general manager Bill Guerin showed with his interest in Jack Eichel that he's willing to swing for the fences.

The team remains active in their search for a center who can play in their top six and moving Greenway along with a prospect and draft pick could fetch them a solid player. Some teams to keep an eye on are the Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Arizona Coyotes and Seattle Kraken who are all looking to make some moves to gain some more assets for the future.

In 222 career NHL games, Greenway has recorded 88 points. While he continues to battle for ice-time in Minny, the trade rumors will continue to run Wild until he's either signed to an extension or moved.
