NHL Surprise: Major Deal Cancelled at the Very Last Second

BY MARCO    MARCH 3, 2023  (3:25 PM)
In the final minutes, a huge scramble occurred in the NHL just before the trade deadline.

Several reputable informants announced a trade sending forward James Van Riemsdyk to the Detroit Red Wings. Everything seemed to indicate that it was almost official, until a last minute turn of events.

Something very unusual happened behind the scenes, and the trade fell through at the last second.

"Something happened with JVR and Detroit, they just cancelled the trade."



This is a very disappointing realization for Philadelphia Flyers fans, especially since JVR was the biggest available name left on the day, according to many.

"Oh boy. Things are changing fast about JVR." - Darren Dreger

Major turnaround.

The 33-year-old has 23 points in 41 games this season. He will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
