3 Potential Landing Spots For Lawson Crouse

We recently reported that Lawson Crouse is another player who may end up traded by the Arizona Coyotes this season. Although he's still a restricted free agent this summer, he is inching closer to hitting UFA status. Furthermore, he's having a very good season. In 30 games, he has eight goals and 15 points. With that, he also never shies away from the physical side of the game, so he provides a bit of everything. 

Here are three teams who should pursue the power forward.

Philadelphia Flyers: Crouse would be a very nice fit for the Flyers. He plays a style that matches their team's identity and would work well in the bottom six. The Flyers could use a little more scoring on their roster and when looking at how well Crouse is playing this year, he could offer that. Furthermore, he has been friends with Travis Konecny since childhood, so that's an added bonus.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Crouse could provide the Maple Leafs with some much-needed sandpaper once the playoffs come around. If he continues to score at this pace, he also could be an excellent replacement for the struggling Nick Ritchie. With that, he would become another winger on Toronto who can bounce up and down the lineup, while still being productive.

Colorado Avalanche: The Avalanche have been dealing with injury trouble all season. With that, it wouldn't be a bad thing for them to add another winger. Given the fact that Crouse has an affordable cap hit, he would certainly be an appealing option for them. The Coyotes and Avalanche are also no strangers to striking deals, as Darcy Kuemper was just dealt there over the summer.

Update: Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff has confirmed that the Flyers have interest in Crouse.
