Blue Jackets Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Andrew Peeke

The Columbus Blue Jackets have a surplus of defensemen after adding Damon Severson and Ivan Provorov. Due to this, Andrew Peeke has come up in the rumor mill often this summer. Let’s discuss two teams who could consider making a push for him from here.

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Toronto Maple Leafs need help on the right side of their defensive group and could look at a player like Peeke because of it. This is especially so when noting that he would be a strong addition to their bottom pairing and penalty kill. With that, he would give them more physicality, and that’s something that would benefit them. 

San Jose Sharks: The San Jose Sharks could certainly use another right-shot defenseman, especially after trading Erik Karlsson this offseason. Due to this, they could be willing to take a chance on a young defenseman with upside like Peeke. He would be a nice addition to their top four and also become one of their best penalty-killing defensemen.
