Buffalo Sabres captain Jason Pominville has been asked to submit a list of eight teams he would not be willing to play for, according to Renaud Lavoie of RDS on Tuesday night.
The request was submitted to Pominville by general manager Darcy Regier, who reportedly explained that he needed to see what was available on the trade market. Pominville is currently playing in the fourth year of a five-year, $26.5 million contract that carries an annual average value of $5.3 million against the salary cap. His contract contains a no-movement clause and a modified no-trade clause, which allows him to identify eight teams he won't accept a trade to.
The NHL trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.
