NHL Rumors: Arizona Coyotes Shopping Forward

The Arizona Coyotes are gearing up to be major sellers at the trade deadline. This should not be surprising to any hockey fan out there, as they are in a full-on rebuild. Players like Jakob Chychrun and Shayne Gostisbehere are getting a ton of buzz in the rumor mill because of it, but an underrated Coyote who is also being shopped is Christian Fischer, according to Craig Morgan.

Playoff teams looking to add a bit more depth to their bottom six will certainly consider the prospect of making a push for Fischer. Although he is not a star, he has shown that he can be a serviceable bottom-six option due to his solid defense of play and decent secondary scoring. As a result, we should not be surprised to see him moved before the deadline.

Teams like the Edmonton Oilers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Calgary Flames should be watched when it comes to Fisher. We will have to wait and see where he ends up going from here.
