Multiple teams have contacted the Montreal Canadiens in regards to defenceman Karl Alzner, per David Pagnotta

The teams that are interested, stated above are the Dallas Stars, Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Islanders & the Colorado Avalanche.

The best fit for Alzner here would be either the Stars or the Islanders.

The reasoning being that Dallas is lacking a good defensive defencemen while Methot is injured. As well that Alzner has history with the Islanders current head coach Barry Trotz who could help Alzner get his career back on track.

The Leafs are most likely in contact because of Gardiner’s expiring contract, as he will be looking for a hefty raise that the leafs will be unable to afford after resigning Nylander, Matthews & Marner.
