By NHL.com Staff -  / 2013 Trade Deadline blog

The NHL trade deadline is less than a month away and things are starting to heat up. Now is a great time to keep up with the latest trade news on Twitter -- if you're not doing so already -- and join in on the conversation using the hashtag #NHLTrade.

NHL.com's Trade Deadline Blog will be the top spot to find all the latest information leading up to deadline day on April 3.

In addition, "Cisco NHL Live" will have NHL Network Insider Darren Dreger on Wednesday to talk about the latest rumors.

Among the stories up for discussion could be the future of Vancouver Canucks defenseman Keith Ballard, who has been a frequent healthy scratch.

Also worth watching is the future of some key players who are headed to unrestricted free agency, among them Jarome Iginla of the Calgary Flames, Lubomir Visnovsky and Mark Streit of the New York Islanders, Mike Ribeiro of the Washington Capitals and Niklas Backstrom of the Minnesota Wild.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
