NHL Rumors: Tomas Tatar Linked To Another Metropolitan Division Team

Tomas Tatar, the seasoned 32-year-old winger, has become a focal point in the ongoing NHL offseason.

Following a decent 48-point season with the New Jersey Devils, Tatar finds himself in the unrestricted free agent market.

While his future seemed initially tied to the Pittsburgh Penguins, recent reports have unveiled a fresh twist, linking Tatar to the New York Islanders, a fellow Metropolitan Division team.

There has been speculation that Tatar might already be in discussions with an NHL club, potentially the Islanders, although any official confirmation remains pending.

This intriguing prospect aligns with the reputation of Islanders' General Manager Lou Lamoriello, renowned for his discreet offseason signings.

Despite the earlier Penguins connection, Tatar's ultimate destination is shrouded in uncertainty as training camps are set to begin on September 21.
