Philadelphia Flyers Rumors: New Team Eyeing Travis Konecny

Travis Konecny has been generating a lot of interest this offseason around the league. Although a move has not come to fruition, it appears that a new team is eyeing the star forward - the St. Louis Blues. 

The Blues are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2022-23 season. They have made some additions to their roster this summer, but none of their moves have been splashes. Bringing in a player like Konecny, however, would help changes things on that front.

The Flyers are not necessarily shopping Konecny at this juncture of the summer, but they are willing to hear offers for him due to their current rebuilding stage. The Blues have some prospects and picks that they could use to bring in a high-impact forward like Konency. 

Konecny would be a nice fit on their first line and be a major contributor to both of their special team units if acquired. In 60 games played this past season, he posted 31 goals to go along with 61 points.

Alas, we will need to wait and see if the Blues' interest in Konecny will lead to anything happen before the start of the season.
