Last night, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman dropped the bombshell news that Brock Boeser’s agent Ben Hankinson had been given permission by the Vancouver Canucks to help facilitate a trade.

The original message seems to have gotten a bit lost in translation, as fans began to speculate about what the report from Friedman really means.

One thing that has certainly made the rounds in various online circles over the past 24 hours is that Boeser must have asked for a trade out of Vancouver if his agent is involved.
