Will Khudobin or Peters be traded this week?

Interesting tidbit here from the CBC’s Elliotte Friedman in his weekly 30 Thoughts column:

Carolina Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford threw cold water on rumblings that Cam Ward might be the goalie he moves. Rutherford wouldn’t comment further, but it is believed he will work to move either Anton Khudobin or Justin Peters by this week’s trade freeze.

Both Khudobin and Peters are 27-year-old pending unrestricted free agents. Neither is waiver exempt, so trying to send one to the AHL would come with the risk of losing the player without compensation. Rutherford has already said he won’t do that.

The holiday trade freeze runs Dec. 19-26.
