With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers are already heating up towards a busy off-season.

Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat.

On The Block?

According to thefourthperiod.com, the Carolina Hurricanes are looking to trade goaltender Cam Ward, who has a no-trade clause and must approve any deal.

Ward has two years remaining on his current contract with a cap hit of $6.3 million, although he will earn $6.7 million next season and $6.8 million in the final year.

The Hurricanes have re-signed goaltender Anton Khudobin, who started games late in the year, and are looking to re-sign Justin Peters.

On The Way Out?

According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, Ryan Malone may be on his way out with the Lightning, which has a compliance buyout remaining.

The buyout period begins Sunday and ends June 30.

A buyout would save the team a $4.5 million cap hit by spreading two-thirds of his $2.5 million salary ($1.67 million) over two years.

Malone faces charges of cocaine possession and driving under the influence. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is scheduled for an arraignment on Monday.
