The Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis are working on a trade that would send Kevin Hayes to the Blues, according to The Athletic’s Jeremy Rutherford.

The trade is thought to include several players from each team. The Blues have three first-round draft picks in the draft — 10, 25 and 29. Such a trade would jump-start the Flyers’ rebuild, which is how general manager Daniel Briere said how the team would proceed.

A source confirmed the Flyers-Blues trade conversation and that the deal did involve multiple players from each side.

Briere said two days ago that Hayes had value to the team and would be hard to replace. Hayes has been the subject of trade rumors for months.

A report from Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman said the trade was being held up because “at least one of the possible participants has not waived [his] no trade/no move protection.”

It is not known whether the hold up is from the Flyers’ side or the Blues’ side.

According to CapFriendly, the Flyers have six players with no movement or no trade clauses:

  • Sean Couturier, no movement clause
  • Travis Sanheim, no trade clause
  • Hayes, 12-team no trade clause
  • Nicolas Deslauriers, 20-team yes list
  • Cam Atkinson, 10-team no trade clause
  • Cal Petersen, 10-team no trade clause

The Blues have nine players with a clause:

  • Brayden Schenn, NTC
  • Brandon Saad, NTC
  • Justin Faulk, NTC
  • Torey Krug, NTC
  • Nick Leddy NTC
  • Jordan Binnington NTC
  • Colton Parayko, NTC
  • Pavel Buchnevich, 12-team NTC
  • Marco Scandella, 7-team NTC

Friedman also reported the Flyers are working on a deal with the Hurricanes to send defenseman Tony DeAngelo back to Carolina.

Also, the Flyers announced they signed defenseman Louie Belpedio to a two-year, two-way contract worth $1.55 million. Belpedio, 27, played last season with the Phantoms.
