NHL Rumors: 2 Potential Free-Agent Destinations for Jesse Puljujarvi

After undergoing double hip surgery earlier this offseason, former top prospect Jesse Puljujarvi is still a free agent. There could be some teams willing to take a chance on him because of his past success and potential, so let's go over two who stand out. 

San Jose Sharks: The San Jose Sharks took a chance on former top prospect Filip Zadina this offseason, so perhaps they could do the same with Puljujarvi. It is not a secret that the Sharks could use more help on the wings, and maybe playing for a rebuilder could be what Puljujarvi needs to turn things back around. 

Philadelphia Flyers: The Philadelphia Flyers were linked to Puljujarvi in the past, and it would make sense for them to take a chance on him. First, their depth at right wing is not particularly impressive, so adding Puljujarvi could make sense for them. Furthermore, he is a young player who may benefit playing for a team with little pressure heading into the new year. 

Let's see if either of these two clubs end up bringing in Puljujarvi from here.
