During his most recent appearance on BPM Sports, the renowned Pierre LeBrun just made an extremely interesting announcement regarding Jake Allen.

A trade is only a matter of time for Allen



The TSN insider confirmed that a trade is very likely to be concluded soon for the veteran goalkeeper, even adding a timeline for his departure.

"Teams have told the Canadiens that they will inquire about Jake Allen in June, if he is not traded before." - Pierre LeBrun on Allen, BPM Sports



This is very interesting information regarding the case of number 34.

According to him, Allen's journey within the organization should end by June, which is a time of the season when teams no longer have strict constraints with their salary cap.

This also coincides with what Kent Hughes recently stated, assuring that he would not have three goalkeepers for the next season.

Therefore, even if Allen does not find a taker by the trade deadline, one should not despair. If he does not move by then, he will surely leave the Canadiens over the summer.

Moreover, it will also be the last year of his contract at $3.85M, which is likely to facilitate a transaction.
