NHL Rumors: Insider Predicts Landing Spot for Jakob Chychrun

Jakob Chychrun's time with the Arizona Coyotes is surely coming to an end, as the 24-year-old defenseman has made it clear that he wants to play for a playoff team. NHL Insider Frank Seravalli weighed in on this in a recent piece for Daily Faceoff and predicted that Chychrun will be traded to the Ottawa Senators before 2023 is here.

It isn't a secret that the Senators have been linked to Chychrun for quite some time. It also makes sense that they are because they are a team on the rise, but they also need to improve their blueline if they want to play postseason hockey this year. If Seravalli's prediction becomes true, that would certainly give them a major boost. 

The Senators have the prospect pool and cap space to acquire Chychrun with ease, so let's see if it comes to fruition. Several other clubs have been linked to him, however, so nothing is set in stone.
