The Chicago Blackhawks are expected to be sellers when the NHL trade deadline comes around. 

General manager Stan Bowman will be looking to clean house and get some assets for some upcoming UFA's.

While the Hawks are trying to get rid of Marcus Kruger, Chris Kunitz and and Andreas Martinsen, it seems one of their young forwards is drawing interest along side Kunitz. 

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, playoff contenders are showing lots of interest in 23 year old forward John Hayden. 

Hayden turns 24 next month and has another season on contract before becoming RFA. 

After registering 13 points in 47 games last year, he's only been able to register three points in 35 games this year.
