ESPN Report: Boston Bruins Don Sweeney Confirm Five offseason Trade Targets To Sign

Boston Bruins Linked to Five Potential Offseason Trade Targets


The Boston Bruins are reportedly eyeing several potential trade targets to address their needs for the upcoming 2024-25 season and beyond. As June progresses, the 2024 NHL Entry Draft and the start of free agency on July 1 are quickly approaching. The Draft, set for June 28 and 29 in Las Vegas, currently has the Bruins without a pick until the fourth round, though this could change with a strategic trade.

There is significant speculation about whether Boston’s GM, Don Sweeney, will make a trade. Much of the discussion revolves around goalie Linus Ullmark, who has a 16-team, soon-to-be 15-team, no-trade clause, complicating potential deals. Should Sweeney succeed in trading Ullmark, questions remain about the potential return—possibly a first-round draft pick or an impactful player. Sweeney has expressed a strong intent to be aggressive in enhancing the roster this offseason. According to The Fourth Period, he has been linked to several potential trade targets.

The Fourth Period Connects Bruins to Top Trade Prospects

In The Fourth Period’s latest Top 25 Summer Trade Watch List, the Bruins are associated with five notable players, including four from the top seven. Among these are familiar names like forward Martin Necas from the Carolina Hurricanes and defenseman Jakob Chychrun from the Ottawa Senators, both of whom are from teams seeking goaltending solutions—making Ullmark a viable trade piece.

Other players linked to Boston include Nikolaj Ehlers from the Winnipeg Jets and forward Trevor Zegras from the Anaheim Ducks. Sweeney has a history of trading with the Ducks, with the acquisition of Hampus Lindholm in 2022 being the most recent example. Additionally, San Jose Sharks’ Mario Ferraro is another player of interest.

As free agency and the draft approach, Sweeney’s moves will be closely watched. Any of the five players mentioned could potentially address key needs for the Bruins in the upcoming season and beyond.
