Rumour Report: Trade chatter swirls around Tyler Toffoli

Tyler Toffoli's name is out there once again in trade talks.

  • Pending UFA winger Tyler Toffoli is likely to hear his name in rumour buzz as the NHL trade deadline approaches.
  • With the Kings in a full-scale rebuild, the enigmatic forward is likely to generate interest from teams looking for a playoff rental. Toffoli's name was out there quite a bit last year, but with inconsistent play and another year on his deal, the market fell through.

  • With the Kings seemingly going nowhere fast this season, it's all but guaranteed Toffoli is moved. An extension doesn't appear likely, especially after he was sent to the press box as a healthy scratch by coach Todd McLellan.

  • The Bruins and Blue Jackets have been linked to Toffoli in the past, and the Bruins especially could come knocking on GM Rob Blakes door again this deadline. Many more teams are likely to kick tires in the coming months.
  • The Kings are bound to figure heavily into trade deadline chatter this year, with names such as Jeff Carter, Jonathan Quick and Kyle Clifford coming up regularly. The next few months could be busy for GM Rob Blake.
