The deadline for NHL rosters is 5PM EST tomorrow and teams are scurrying to get under the salary cap and roster limit. 

We've seen some surprising names placed on waivers today and yesterday and we'll likely see a trade in the next 24 hours. 

According to reports, one player has been told by his team he'll be moved. 

Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports that Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has told Jack Johnson that he could be traded before the deadline. 

Johnson has been surpassed on the Penguins depth chart by Juuso Riikola and is a bit too pricey to carry as a 7th or 8th defenseman. 

The 32 year old carries a $3.25million cap hit per season through the 2022-23 season.
