Taylor Hall could be traded by the Buffalo Sabres prior to the NHL Trade Deadline on April 12, general manager Kevyn Adams said Wednesday.

The 29-year-old forward can become an unrestricted free agent after this season. He signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Sabres on Oct. 11, 2020.

"We're open to anything and everything," Adams said. "My job is to do anything and everything to make this franchise move in the right direction. I have a very good relationship with (Hall's agent) Darren Ferris and Taylor. Open lines of communication and obviously days are moving forward here, so there will be a lot of conversations around that."
