Coyotes scratch Jakob Chychrun against Blues for ‘trade-related reasons’

Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun is a healthy scratch for Saturday night’s game against the St. Louis Blues due to trade-related reasons, the team announced. 

Chychrun, 24, has spent his entire seven-year NHL career with the Coyotes after being drafted 16th overall by the club in 2016. He has seven goals and 28 points in 36 games this season. 

Chychrun has been the subject of trade rumours for more than a year and has previously been linked to interest from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, Boston Bruins and Los Angeles Kings. 

The Boca Raton, Fla., native is under contract through the 2024-25 campaign with a cap hit of $4.6 million in each of the next two seasons.

The NHL trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET on March 3.
