It would appear that one team might be willing to deal away one of their big bodies.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Arizona Coyotes are reportedly fielding calls on center Martin Hanzal. Hanzal has only one year remaining on his contract and if the two sides can't agree on a new deal, he is likely to be traded.

"Some teams have asked about [Hanzal]," said Friedman on his "Headlines" segment. "They're going to talk about a contract extension but they've also asked to find out his list of teams he would be willing to go to." 

The 29-year-old becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season. The 6'6, 226 pounder had 13 goals and 41 points in 64 games in 2015-16.

There is likely to be a few teams willing to make a trade for a big-bodied centerman.
