NHL Rumors: Teams Calling Calgary Flames About Star Forward

While on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, David Pagnotta reported that some teams have already called the Flames to question the availability of recently acquired winger Jonathan Huberdeau.
Huberdeau was of course the major piece acquired from the Panthers in the Matthew Tkachuk blockbuster. David Dwork recently reported that Huberdeau is unhappy with the way things happened with the Panthers, as they were set to begin extension. Instead, the 29-year-old star is set to join Calgary as he enters the final year of his deal. 

Huberdeau just had a spectacular season, as he had 30 goals and recorded 115 points. Naturally, the Flames will want to re-sign him to a long-term extension - especially after losing both Tkachuk and Johnny Gaudreau this summer. However, that isn't stopping teams from calling about him. It seems doubtful that the Flames would part ways with their new addition so quickly. Yet, if he makes it clear that he doesn't want a new deal in Calgary, perhaps the right offer could make something happen.
