The Montreal Canadiens will not negotiate a contract extension with captain Max Pacioretty and now intend to trade him, according to a report from The Athletic on Tuesday. Citing an NHL source, the report says general manager Marc Bergevin told Pacioretty -- who is entering the final year of his contract -- there will be no contract negotiations and the team intends to trade the left winger as soon as possible. Pacioretty, 29, is due .5 million in 2018-19, the final year of a six-year, million deal he signed in August of 2012.
