Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun can expect to hear his name in NHL trade deadline discussions more and more in the coming days and weeks, just like a year ago. In 2022, the Coyotes ultimately did not pull the trigger on a Chychrun trade, but that continues to be a possibility, especially with the deadline just less than six weeks away.

With Arizona going nowhere again this season and still in the middle of a painful rebuild, it could convert Jakob Chychrun into future draft picks via a trade. The asking price of the Coyotes for Chychrun, however, might be too much for most teams interested in acquiring the blue-liner.
