Bruins Rumors: Pacific Division Team Showing Trade Interest In Jake DeBrusk

During this NHL offseason, trade speculations have ignited discussions surrounding the Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins.

A focal point of these talks involves the Flames' expressed interest in acquiring Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk.

DeBrusk's journey with the Bruins has seen its share of challenges and triumphs.

DeBrusk's goal-scoring prowess, demonstrated by his 27 and 25 goals in the past two seasons, makes him an appealing option for the Flames.

Despite facing ups and downs, including periods of discord with former coach Bruce Cassidy and a trade request, DeBrusk's recent resurgence cannot be ignored.

Last season, he showcased his previously-mentioned scoring prowess with an impressive 50 points (27 goals and 23 assists) in 64 games played, reigniting interest in his potential value.

One trade scenario that has emerged centers around the Flames' pursuit of DeBrusk.

The Flames might consider offering a deal that includes sending Flames center Mikael Backlund and possibly a mid-round draft pick as well to the Bruins in exchange for DeBrusk.

At 34 years old, Backlund had a career-best season last year, scoring 19 goals and 56 points across 82 games last season.
