Elias Lindholm has been a trade candidate for the Calgary Flames since this past summer, and as the March 8 trade deadline approaches, the chances that he is moved become higher and higher.

Mock trade sends Elias Lindholm to the Boston Bruins

Now, The Athletic have come together and given us some potential mock trades for the veteran centre, and this one in particular stands out.

Calgary receives; 2025 first-round pick, F Matthew Poitras, F Trent Frederic.

Boston receives; Elias Lindholm.

Right now this may seem a lot for a player like Lindholm, but the last time we saw him with elite linemates was 2021-22 alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk where he posted a 40-goal campaign.

Boston lock up their 1C of the future?

In 2023-24 however, Lindholm is slumping in a big way, posting just 9 goals and 32 points in 49 games, but alongside David Pastrnak and other top stars, he could emerge as a major threat once more.

The Flames are looking to be big sellers ahead of the trade deadline, and with teams like Winnipeg, Carolina, Toronto and New Jersey linked to them regarding several of their key assets, absolutely anything could happen, but keep an eye on the Boston Bruins and Elias Lindholm.
