The Toronto Maple Leafs have contacted the Montreal Canadiens about a possible trade involving defenseman Ben Chiarot, according to TSN NHL expert Chris Johnston.

From Johnston:

"Ben Chiarot just happens to be a player that the Leafs have at least made some calls on to Montreal." - Chris Johnston

Chiarot is in the final year of a $3.5 million contract and will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. With Jake Muzzin sidelined for the season, the Leafs could use a player like Chiarot on the blueline.
