Calgary Flames

Noah Hanifin

Noah Hanifin is a 27-year-old, 6'3", 207 Lbs. left-shooting defenseman. He has nine goals and 17 assists for 26 points in 50 games. Hanifin is averaging 23:33 minutes of ice time this season. He has 33 blocked shots and 31 hits. He could be the scoring threat the Leafs thought they were getting when they signed John Klingberg, who is now on LTIR.

Hanifin has a salary cap hit of $4.95 million. He will be a UFA this summer and is one of the pricier rental options for the Leafs to consider. He could be the answer for helping the Leafs power play.

Chris Tanev

Chris Tanev is a 34-year-old, 6'2", 193 Lbs. right-shooting defenseman. He has one goal and eight assists for nine points in 47 games. Tanev is averaging 19:42 minutes of ice time this season. He has an impressive 142 blocked shots, along with 18 hits. Tanev likes to keep pucks away from his team's net, which would be nice for the Leafs to have.

Tanev has a salary cap hit of $4.5 million. He will be a UFA this summer and is another pricy rental option for the Leafs to consider.

Jacob Markstrom

Jacob Markstrom is a 34-year-old, 6'6", 207 Lbs. goaltender. He has a 15-13-2 record with two shutouts through 30 games. Markstrom currently has a 2.55 GAA and a .913 SV%. He could be an option if the Leafs trade one of Martin Jones or Ilya Samsonov, and Joseph Woll is not ready to return from injury yet.

Markstrom will not be easy to add with a salary cap hit of $6 million. He is under contract until the end of the 2025-26 season. His current contract was given to him by the Leafs GM Brad Treliving, while he was the GM of the Flames.
