Philadelphia Flyers Rumors: New Team Linked to Travis Konecny

The Philadelphia Flyers have begun their rebuild. Ivan Provorov has been dealt, and players like Carter Hart, Kevin Hayes, and Travis Konecny are expected to follow. When it comes to Konecny specifically, a new team has entered the sweepstakes. According to The Fourth Period, the St. Louis Blues are linked to the star.

The Blues had a year to forget in 2022-23, missing the playoffs due to extremely inconsistent play. This led to them parting ways with Vladimir Tarasenko and Ryan O'Reilly at the deadline. As a result, the Blues could use another star to replace them, and Konecny would be a great option for them.

Konecny is coming off of a strong 2022-23 campaign, scoring 31 goals and recording 61 points in 60 games. Adding that kind of consistent production to the lineup would be massive for the Blues as they aim to have a bounce-back season. 

Several other teams will want to acquire Konecny, so the Blues will have competition. We will need to wait and see if their interest in him can lead to them winning the sweepstakes from here.
