Alex DeBrincat at the heart of rumors
For the past few weeks, Alex DeBrincat has been the subject of rumors that his days are numbered in Chicago.
These noises continue to intensify day by day. Blackhawks fans shouldn’t find her funny.
In the hockey world, several well-informed sources, including Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff, argue that the left winger will most likely change address during the summer season. At worst, before the next trade deadline.
TRADE TARGETS 🎯: #Blackhawks 41-goal scorer Alex DeBrincat leads off the first board of the summer as the No. 1 player available.
Here are @DailyFaceoff‘s 25 names in play with exactly 5 weeks until the #NHLDraft:https://t.co/JTDhFISc45

Alex DeBrincat is not fat (165 pounds), he is not tall (5 feet 7 inches), but he is young (24 years old) and gifted. If the Hawks’ general staff is indeed open to serious discussions, it will make him the most coveted player in the League.
We remind you that the NHL draft session will take place here, in a month.
From Brincat to Montreal?
We know that red suits him well, but would Alex DeBrincat be as flamboyant in the Canadiens’ uniform?
It would be expensive (too much…), but it’s nice to dream.
We will not hide it, Patrick Kane has always had the gift of highlighting this teammate. When one of the best game makers in the world is skating on your line, it’s easier to put her in. The 2016 2nd round pick (39th overall) is nonetheless full of talent, like some other young prodigies playing in Montreal.
And he has heart in his stomach.

The Habs organization has some good cards in its hands, but will it be tempted to play them?
The three-year contract worth $19.2 million signed by DeBrincat in 2019 will expire at the end of the 2022-2023 campaign.
Since making his debut for the Windy City in 2017, the No. 12 has collected 307 points in 368 games. This year, he hit the target 41 times for the second time in his young career. Since their Stanley Cup in 2015, the Blackhawks have not once crossed the first round of the playoffs. It’s even getting worse and worse.
