It had been reported by this and other sites that Jakob Chychrun had changed his social media bio after the All-Star game to not include the Arizona Coyotes.

This led to speculation that he was in the process of being traded. In an article for gophnx.com, Coyotes insider Craig Morgan dispelled all the Chychrun trade rumors related to his social media.

"Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun was all the rage on Twitter this past weekend. According to amateur sleuths, he had scrubbed all reference of his current team from his social media accounts during the All-Star break. He had recently followed a bunch of Toronto Maple Leafs players. He had recently followed a bunch of Boston Bruins. He had recently followed a bunch of Edmonton Oilers. Who knows, maybe he even followed a bunch of KHL players.

I already know what you're going to ask me, he said.


Chychrun didn't scrub the Coyotes from his social media accounts during the All-Star break. He did that at the end of last season when he and everyone else thought he was going to be traded at the draft.

It's just that nobody noticed, he said, laughing.

By the way, there are still very prevalent photos of Chychrun in a Coyotes uniform on his social media accounts. As for those players he supposedly just followed? He said he has followed them for a long time. That's no surprise. The NHL brotherhood is a web of relationships."

One of the teams who has been rumoured to want to swing a deal for the 24 year old blueliner is the Edmonton Oilers. They certainly could use him whether Connor McDavid has added him to his Twitter or not.

The drama and trade speculation about the top defenceman has been going on for some time now. Because of that, rumours start flying. All the wild speculation may be caused by the approaching March 3rd trade deadline.

Actual good founded information can only be found from valid sources. Some GM's use the media to raise the hype for a particular player, hoping to increase their trade value.

Chychrun remains a player many teams, including the Oilers still have interest in adding before the deadline. Whether an acceptable deal comes to fruition still remains to be seen.
