DETROIT — Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Thursday that he’s in the process of discussing potential trades involving center Logan Ciroux.
Holland’s comments came after the Lightning and Blackhawks played in Detroit on Wednesday.
“I’m trying to talk to a few teams,” Holland said.
“It’s not a surprise to me that we’re talking about it, but I’m still in the preliminary phase.”
While Holland and coach Mike Babcock have said that the Red Wings want to bring in players that can help them compete in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it’s unlikely they’ll be able to get Couture.
The Lightning have been in the hunt for a center since the NHL Draft in April, and they still have two more weeks to add one.
The Lightning will likely not make a deal until the Trade Deadline on Thursday, when teams must submit their own players.
