A pair of Chicago Blackhawk blue-liners are garnering quite a bit of interest.
Chicago, which is expected to be a big seller at the trade deadline, has received a number of calls on defensemen Jake McCabe and Connor Murphy in recent weeks, according to Daily Faceoff's Frank Seravalli.
Both are 29-year-old defense-oriented blue-liners who have term remaining on their contracts. McCabe is signed through 2024-25 at a $4-million cap hit, while Murphy's deal runs through 2025-26 at $4.4 million per season, via CapFriendly.
The Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, and Toronto Maple Leafs are among the teams believed to be interested in the defensemen, according to Seravalli.
