2 San Jose Sharks Who Could Be Traded Before 2023-24 Season

Now that the busiest part of free agency is over, trade talk is starting to pick up again. As a result, this series will go over two players from each team who could be traded before the start of the 2023-24 season. 

In this latest edition of the series, we will be focusing on the San Jose Sharks.

Erik Karlsson: Erik Karlsson is of course being shopped heavily this offseason, with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes linked to him. The star defenseman wants to play for a contender, and the Sharks are aiming to give him that chance. In 82 games this past season, the 33-year-old had 35 goals, 76 assists, and 101 points. With that, he of course won his third Norris Trophy. 

Kevin Labanc: Kevin Labanc has also been in the rumor mill this summer. The 27-year-old winger is a decent third-line forward who posted 15 goals and 33 points in 72 games. Teams looking to improve their forward group before the start of the season could be calling about the New York native.
