According to Calgary Herald, Bruins, Kings, Rangers and Sharks also in mix
According to the Dispatch, the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs "are believed to be on the approved list."
The paper also says the Jackets are seeking at least one young player on an NHL team's roster, as well as top prospects and draft picks.
Sharks net Moore
The San Jose Sharks added depth at the centre position Thursday night by acquiring Dominic Moore from the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The deal sees the Lightning land a second-round pick while handing over a seventh-round pick to San Jose. The second-rounder originally belonged to the Minnesota Wild.
The well-travelled Moore, 31, has also played for the Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Minnesota Wild, Toronto, Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens.
In 56 games with Tampa this season, Moore had four goals and 15 assists.
Meanwhile, the Lightning plan to keep Pavel Kubina out of the lineup while attempting to trade the veteran defenceman. Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman announced the decision Thursday.
Tampa Bay entered Thursday 13th in the Eastern Conference and is a longshot to make the playoffs.
Kubina, 34, has 11 points and is plus-1 in 52 games this season.
