With the 2013 NHL Draft just a few hours away, there are more and more trade rumors beginning to surface. The latest rumors surrounds the Carolina Hurricanes No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which the Toronto Maple Leafs reportedly have interest in.

From TSN hockey insider Darren Dreger:

Rielly, who the Hurricanes would like to have in a package, was the fifth overall pick just a year ago. He went on to have record 54 points in 60 WHL appearances last season.

While the Maple Leafs have interest in the pick, they are not alone. Dreger also adds that the Hurricanes have fielded multiple offers for the No. 5 pick, so they will have their options when the draft officially begins.
