NHL Rumors: Canucks Interested In Veteran Center

Nazem Kadri is one of the top UFA centers set to hit the market this offseason, so plenty of teams will have him on their radar. According to Rick Dhaliwal, the Vancouver Canucks are one of them, as he's somebody on their "list."

The Canucks will be a team that all hockey fans need to watch closely this offseason. Players like J.T. Miller, Conor Garland, and Brock Boeser have been in the rumor mill. Yet, even with this being so, it appears Vancouver is considering the possibility of signing other high-impact players through free agency.

Kadri just had a career year at the perfect time, so Vancouver would need to pay him a large salary to successfully sign him. In 71 games on the year, he scored 28 goals and recorded 87 points. With that, he also was a huge part of the Avalanche's Stanley Cup win. Let's see if he's a Canuck in 2022-23.
