Philadelphia Flyers Rumors: Scott Laughton Linked to New Team

The Philadelphia Flyers have been listening to offers for Scott Laughton this offseason. Several teams are interested in the gritty forward, and it appears that a new club has joined the mix - the Seattle Kraken.

The Kraken are looking to build off of their excellent 2022-23, so it makes sense that they are considering acquiring a hard-nosed forward like Laughton. Their lineup could certainly use a bit more sandpaper, and Laughton provides plenty of that. With that, he is a strong two-way player who can play multiple positions. 

Laughton is coming off of a strong season, as he posted 18 goals to go along with 43 points in 78 games played. With numbers like these, he would be a nice addition to their second line. He also made a difference with his physicality this season, posting 156 hits. 

Seattle has cap space to work with as well, so they easily could bring in Laughton from a financial standpoint.
