NHL Rumors: Canadiens Interested In Devils Forward

According to Elliotte Friedman, the Montreal Canadiens are interested in New Jersey Devils forward Pavel Zacha. 

Zacha entered the rumor mill earlier this season, but the Devils have yet to trade him. However, with the trade deadline less than a week away, the 2015 first-round pick could be sporting a new logo shortly. Now, it's clear that the Canadiens are a potential landing spot for the 24-year-old.

Although the Canadiens are currently rebuilding, Zacha does fit their current identity. He is still a young player who has the potential to continue to improve from here. In 55 games thus far, he has 13 goals to go along with 15 assists. He also has been picking up his play lately, as he has nine points over his last 12 contests.

It will be interesting to see if Montreal ends up being the team that acquires Zacha. However, he has been getting a decent amount of interest around the league elsewhere.
