NHL Rumors: 3 Potential Trade Destinations For Jakob Chychrun

Jakob Chychrun was the biggest name on the trading block during the 2021-22 season. Yet, at this time, he still remains a member of the Arizona Coyotes. However, with the team's fire sale still going on, expect to see a Chychrun blockbuster occur this summer. Here are three teams who will be in the mix.

St. Louis Blues: The Blues have been searching for a top-pairing, left-handed defenseman for a long time. Due to this, they were in on the Chychrun sweepstakes before the deadline and will be yet again this summer. They want to add another Stanley Cup to their franchise history, and he could be a player that helps them get closer to that. 

Los Angeles Kings: The Kings took a massive step forward this season by making the playoffs and beating out teams like the Vegas Golden Knights in the process. With this, now feels like the time for them to make a major splash, and getting Chychrun would be just that. Like St. Louis, they were in on the sweepstakes this season, too. 

Florida Panthers: The Panthers were heavily interested in Chychrun this season, and it makes all the sense in the world. Although they already are a juggernaut, they could use a big boost on the left side of their defensive group. They have a roster that should be contenders for several seasons, but adding Chychrun to it would make them even better.
