Winnipeg Jets Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Nino Niederreiter

The Athletic recently listed Nino Niederreiter as a trade candidate heading into the 2023-24 season. If the Winnipeg Jets officially shop the veteran winger, these two teams could be in the mix for his services. 

Buffalo Sabres: The Buffalo Sabres are looking to add a forward before the start of the season due to Jack Quinn's long-term injury. When noting that the Sabres are on the rise and have cap space, they could consider bringing in a solid middle-six winger like Niederreiter. He would also give them another veteran who could be a nice mentor for their younger players. 

New Jersey Devils: The New Jersey Devils could also consider adding Niederreiter to their group before the start of the year or at the deadline. He would be a nice addition to their second or third line and give them a bit more grit as they look to make a real run in the playoffs in 2023-24.

We will need to wait and see if either of these two teams ends up adding Niederreiter from here. He would be a solid addition to either club if so.
