Pittsburgh Penguins Rumors: Jason Zucker Linked to Contender

The Vegas Golden Knights are expected to have a busy offseason. If they lose Ivan Barbashev through free agency, there are rumblings that they will focus their attention on Jason Zucker.

Zucker, who grew up in Vegas, would provide the Golden Knights with another solid second-line forward if signed. The veteran winger just had a solid season that saw him score 27 goals and record 48 points in 78 games. As a result, he would be a very good scorer for the Golden Knights to add for next season and onward.

When noting that Zucker is one of the best pending UFAs expected to hit the market this summer, he is going to get a lot of attention. Some early possible destinations include the Toronto Maple Leafs, Washington Capitals, New York Islanders, St. Louis Blues, and Nashville Predators. As a result, Vegas will have a lot of competition to sign him, so we will need to wait and see if they can do just that.
