Canadiens: Teams are reportedly interested in a trade involving Tanner Pearson

Will Tanner Pearson change his title between now and the March 8 trade deadline?

Our cooperation with The athletePierre Lebrun, let it be known during his segment on Hockey 360 That even if a forward is not a priority for teams that want to reach the playoffs, Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes is certainly getting some calls regarding his forward.

“Tanner Pearson is not at the top of their list, but he is on their list,” LeBron said of other teams' priorities.

He adds above all that CH risks retaining part of Pearson's salary to complete the deal. We'll have to see as LeBron suggests if Hughes will want to opt for this athletic manipulation in a deal with Pearson or if he wants to keep that option to optimize for another deal.

At 31 years old, Pearson will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this campaign. He signed a three-year agreement in April 2021 that brings him $3.25 million annually.

In his first season with the Habs, the forward scored 10 points, including six assists, in 36 games. He was sidelined from December 9 to January 23 with an upper-body injury.

The player, who began his career with the Los Angeles Kings during the 2013-2014 season, also wore the uniform of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks.
