A potential trade involving Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Niclas Wallin has fallen through.
"There was a pending deal with a team, and after going through the process of a few days, it didn't materialize," Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford told ESPN.com on Saturday.
TSN of Canada reported Wednesday night that a trade to send Wallin to the San Jose Sharks was nearly complete. Rutherford refused to identify the team to ESPN.com, but a source confirmed it was the Sharks. Wallin, an unrestricted free agent July 1, has a no-trade clause.
