Anaheim Ducks Rumors: 3 Possible Landing Spots for Frank Vatrano

Frank Vatrano was one of the many Anaheim Ducks who were in the rumor mill before the deadline passed. Although a move did not come to fruition, they are expected to listen to offers for him this summer as well. Thus, let’s look at three possible landing spots for him. 

Washington Capitals: The Washington Capitals have had a rough 2022-23, and they already made notable changes to their group because of it. However, with Alex Ovechkin still on the team, they will be aiming to turn things around next season. Thus, they should be aggressive this summer on the trade market, and Vatrano stands out as a target for them.

Vancouver Canucks: The Vancouver Canucks are another team looking to get things back on track. They made it clear that they want to be competitive next season when they acquired Filip Hronek from the Detroit Red Wings at the deadline, so it would not be surprising if they looked to add a scoring forward like Vatrano this offseason.

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Toronto Maple Leafs have some notable pending unrestricted free agents, so they will likely be on the hunt for a middle-six forward this summer. Vatrano’s offensive ability could make him a fine addition to Toronto’s roster because of it.
