Reports: Calgary's Iginla on trade market

According to multiple reports, Calgary Flames forward Jarome Iginla is available on the trade market.

"What we believe is going on is that the process had begun to trade him, and the list of teams is very small and it’s Stanley Cup contenders," said the CBC's Elliotte Friedman on the Hot Stove segment of Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday.

Meanwhile, both TSN's Darren Dreger, who is a hockey insider on the NHL Network as well, and Renaud Lavoie of RDS are reporting that four Stanley Cup contenders are on a list of teams Iginla has told the Flames he would waive the no-movement clause in his contract to join. According to both reporters, the Boston Bruins, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings, the defending Stanley Cup champion, comprise the list.

Chiarelli trying to find right balance in deadline approach

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli is walking a very fine line approaching the April 3 NHL trade deadline.

While he has a few spots in mind he'd like to improve his team, he has no interest in altering the core of a group that won the Stanley Cup in 2011.

"You always want to try and improve," Chiarelli told CSNNE.com. "I want to try and keep the roster as intact as possible. I'll never say 'never,' but that's been my objective. I think I've shown over the years I'm trying to keep the core together and I'm going to continue and try to do that."

The injury to Chris Kelly has Chiarelli most focused ont rying to add something to a third line that has struggled to perform consistently.

"We've been trying to fill that hole on the third line and we haven't been able to," Chiarelli said. "That's an area we'd like to improve."

CSNNE.com lists potential targets as the Dallas Stars' Jaromir Jagr and Brenden Morrow and Ryane Clowe of the San Jose Sharks. The Calgary Flames' Jarome Iginla and Jay Bouwmeester also are possibilities, but the cost could be too high.

Boychuk back with the Hurricanes

Forward Zach Boychuk certainly has racked up plenty of frequent-flyer miles in this shortened season.

Boychuk on Thursday was claimed on waivers by the Carolina Hurricanes. It's the third time this season the 23-year-old has been claimed, this time going from the Nashville Predators to Carolina.

Boychuk was claimed by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 31 after being waived by the Hurricanes. He played in seven games for the Penguins before being acquired on waivers by the Predators on March 5.

He had one goal and two points in five games with the Predators, and has totaled two points and six penalty minutes in 13 NHL games this season with Carolina, Pittsburgh and Nashville.
