NHL Rumors: 3 Teams Expected to Target Luke Schenn This Offseason

Luke Schenn is going to receive plenty of interest if he elects to test the free-agent market this summer. The veteran defenseman has completely revitalized his career, and several teams would love to add his physicality and reliability to their defensive group. Therefore, let's discuss three teams expected to target him this summer.

Tampa Bay Lightning: The Tampa Bay Lightning were in on Schenn before his eventual trade to the Toronto Maple Leafs. When noting that their right side could use a boost and he previously won two Stanley Cups with them, it makes sense that they wanted him back for this year's postseason. Look for them to pursue him once again this summer. 

Calgary Flames: Schenn is exactly the kind of player that the Calgary Flames love to have. Without any surprise, they were in on the Schenn sweepstakes this deadline season. When noting that their right side could use a bit of a boost, we should expect them to be among the teams looking to sign him this offseason.

Vegas Golden Knights: The Vegas Golden Knights were also very interested in Schenn leading up to the deadline. It ultimately makes sense, as they could use a right-shot shutdown defenseman on their bottom pairing.
