As the clock winds down towards the start of the 2019 NHL Draft, trade chatter continues to build.
Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney continues to look for a possible solution on the second line wing and reports are that he might of found his target.
The Fourth Period's Shawn Hutcheon reports the Bruins are kicking tires on forward Jason Zucker.
The Minnesota Wild forward was mentioned in the Phil Kessel rumors recently in a trade that would have been one-for-one between the Wild and Pittsburgh, however Kessel blocked the deal with his no move clause.
Zucker is signed through the 2022-23 season and carries a $5.5million cap hit.
He put up 21 goals last year and 31 the year before.
A trade would likely cost the Bruins their 2019 first round pick.
Would you like to see Zucker in a Bruins' uniform?
