Who could move on Friday?

General managers of some of the NHL's top teams have been busy the past two days before Friday's trade deadline.

The Carolina Hurricanes won the Jake Guentzel sweepstakes on Thursday night.

A day earlier, the Vegas Golden Knights acquired Noah Hanifin from the Calgary Flames, the best defenseman available on the trade market. This follows the trade of him for Washington Capitals forward Anthony Mantha on Tuesday.

Also off the market: Vladimir Tarasenko (Florida Panthers), Adam Henrique (Edmonton Oilers), Casey Mittelstadt and Sean Walker (Colorado Avalanche), Alex Wennberg (New York Rangers) and Anthony Duclair (Tampa Bay Lightning).

Here's who could still be in play before Friday's trade deadline at 3 p.m. ET:

Forward Frank Vatrano, Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim Ducks winger Frank Vatrano is playing in the 2024 NHL All-Star Game.

General manager Pat Verbeek already landed a first-round pick and other draft picks by releasing Henrique, Sam Carrick and Ilya Lyubushkin, all pending unrestricted free agents. Vatrano has a term left on his contract. He is an All-Star for the first time this season with a career-high 29 goals. That includes 11 power-play goals and two shorthanded goals.
