The NHL trade deadline is weeks away. However, the Buffalo Sabres and the Winnipeg Jets are working on a trade.

This morning, it has been reported that there is a six-player deal in the works between the teams. The two big names in this trade are Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian, which are expected to go to Buffalo.

Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia, Brendan Lemieux and a first round pick are expected to go to Winnipeg.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, there could be other elements in play in this trade.

Dreger has said that the first round pick will be the lowest of the three that the Sabres have. He also said that this is a very complicated trade, as an unsigned player could be involved in the trade, as well.

Kane was expected to have season-ending shoulder surgery earlier this month. The 23-year-old has 10 goals and 12 assists in 37 games.

Bogosian is a 24-year-old defenseman, who has three goals and 10 assists in 41 games.

Myers, who is a 25-year-old defenseman, has four goals and nine assists in 47 games. Armia is a 21-year-old winger, who only played in one game for the Sabres.

Stafford, 29, is a winger, who has nine goals and 15 assists in 50 games. Lemieux has not played for the Sabres, as he’s been with the OHL’s Barrie Colts to get more seasoning in junior hockey.
