Canadiens Rumors: 4 Teams Listed As Potential Trade Destinations For Jake Allen & Cayden Primeau

The Montreal Canadiens' goaltenders, Cayden Primeau and Jake Allen, have become prime targets in the NHL trade market, drawing the attention of multiple teams, according to Marc Dumont of Montreal Hockey Now and Lyle Richardson.

The Carolina Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils, both currently outside of playoff positions in the Eastern Conference, have emerged as particularly interested suitors.

Their need for goaltending depth has become increasingly apparent as they seek to solidify their positions and make a push for the playoffs.

The 33-year-old Allen holds a .901 save percentage, 3.58 GAA, and a 3-6-2 record across 11 starts this season.

While the Edmonton Oilers were actively pursuing goaltending help earlier in the season, a recent seven-game winning streak, buoyed by the improved performances of their goalie, could quiet things down a bit in that area.

The 24-year-old Primeau has recorded a .902 SV%, 3.40 GAA, and a 3-3 record across six starts thus far this year.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Kings have been enjoying a successful season, largely thanks to veteran Cam Talbot's stellar play, though the occasional struggles of backup Pheonix Copley have left the door open for potential goalie considerations.

As the NHL trade landscape evolves, it remains to be seen which, if any, of these teams will ultimately acquire the Canadiens' goaltending talent to address their specific needs and bolster their playoff aspirations. Photo Credit: David Kirouac-USA TODAY Sports
