A former Edmonton Oilers star defenceman has been made a healthy scratch ahead of his current team's game tonight with reports a trade is coming.

Barry Trotz Gives Go Ahead for Player to Find Trade



According to Sportnet's Elliotte Friedman, defenceman Tyson Barrie has been given permission to seek a trade by Nashville Predators GM Barry Trotz. In the meantime, Barrie will sit out tonight's game against the New York Rangers.

"There is word today the Nashville Predators have given Tyson Barrie permission to talk to other teams. Barrie is expected to be a scratch vs the Rangers and is a UFA after this season. This allows team and player to see if there is a better fit elsewhere."
