NHL Rumors: 2 Teams Linked to Tomas Tatar

Tomas Tatar is one of the top free agents still available in free agency, but things on that front could change soon. The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are two teams expressing immense interest in the veteran winger.

The Ducks have a ton of cap space to work with, and they need to hit the cap floor before the start of the season. When noting that Tatar is looking for a solid payday, there could be a good match here between both parties. The Ducks have shown this offseason that they want to improve in 2023-24, adding Alex Killorn and Radko Gudas. Thus, it makes sense that they are now looking at Tatar as a late-summer addition.

The Sharks, on the other hand, were one of the teams heavily linked to Vladimir Tarasenko this offseason. They ended up missing out on him, so it is understandable that Tatar is becoming a possible target for them. Like Tarasenko, he is a point-producing winger, and he would be a decent option for their second line if signed.

We will need to wait and see if either of these clubs ends up signing Tatar before the start of the season from here.
