Top Veteran Changes Agency to Facilitate a Trade Before the Deadline

A renowned veteran in the NHL just got one step closer to being traded before this year's deadline.

Vladimir Tarasenko Changes Agent Once Again to Facilitate Possible Trade

Indeed, Ottawa Senators' forward Vladimir Tarasenko changed agents for the second time in the last year. He had already switched agent a few days after the opening of the free agents market last summer, which led to his signature in Ottawa.


With his $5 million AAV contract ending after the season and his No-Trade Clause, it won't be easy to include him in a trade. The player probably believed he had better chances with another agent to help him navigate through the deadline.

The insider Pierre LeBrun revealed that Tarasenko is now represented by Craig Oster.

Here's his full statement:

"Vladimir Tarasenko has switched agents for the second time in seven months, now repped by Craig Oster of Newport Sports. There's obviously work to be done ahead of the March 8 trade deadline with the pending UFA winger likely getting dealt by Ottawa. He's got a full NTC." LeBrun said.


There's no doubt that Tarasenko could be an interesting addition to a team looking to make a splash in the playoffs. However, not all teams can afford his contract.

This season, in 45 games with the Senators, the forward scored 33 points, including 13 goals.

Do you think the Senators will trade him before the deadline?
