This story just took another turn, according to a report by sportsnet’s Eric Francis the Flames organization was blindsided by news that their player wanted a trade and are now saying that it never happened.
Several sources inside the club told Sportsnet.ca team management was blindsided Saturday by Elliotte Friedman’s second period report that cited Bennett’s agent, Darren Ferris, as saying his client would like a “change of scenery.”
It seems to be a miscommunication between player, agent and team. Sam Bennett may have talked to his agent about a change of scenery but no formal request was ever made, contrary to recent reports.
As Eric Francis says in his piece, the honus is now on Bennett to come out and clear the air with his team, the fans and media.
