Max Pacioretty’s agent Allan Walsh denied a recent report that his client requested a trade.

The report suggested that Pacioretty asked on numerous occasions to be traded during the 2017-18 campaign. "I would tell you this and I’m going to say it directly and I hope everybody hears me and understands this. has never, never ever requested a trade out of Montreal, period. End of story," Walsh said. To the contrary: Walsh said that Pacioretty has instructed him do to everything possible for him to stay in Montreal. However, with Pacioretty's contract set to expire next summer, the Canadiens haven't made any offers, per Walsh. The agent did confirm a recent report that Montreal attempted to trade Pacioretty to Los Angeles during the draft, but that trade fell apart because the Kings couldn't work out an extension with Pacioretty.

The Los Angeles Kings are believed to be among the teams interested in acquiring Jeff Skinner, but are first waiting to see if they can sign Ilya Kovalchuk.

As previously reported, it seems that Skinner likely won't be traded until after Kovalchuk is signed. Given that Kovalchuk can't sign until July 1 at the earliest, we're consequently unlikely to see a draft night trade involving Skinner. While the Hurricanes aren't necessarily pressured to trade Skinner yet, he is entering the last season of his six-year, $34.35 million contract so the timing makes a lot of sense if they can get good value for him.

The Los Angeles Kings are reportedly believed to be among the teams that have submitted a contract offer to Ilya Kovalchuk.

Kovalchuk can't sign any contract until July 1 though. In addition to Los Angeles, it's believed that Boston, Vegas, and San Jose are also pursuing his services. Previous reports also linked the Blues and Red Wings to Kovalchuk, so perhaps they also still have a chance.
