Blues Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Kasperi Kapanen

The St. Louis Blues are off to a brutal start in 2023-24 and already look like potential sellers this season because of it. If the Blues end up being moved, Kasperi Kapanen will likely be moved, as he has an expiring contract. Let’s discuss two teams who could consider acquiring him if he is made available.

Colorado Avalanche: The Avs certainly could look at a player like Kapanen. Their bottom six could use a boost, and Kapanen would give them just that. When playing at his best, he provides solid secondary scoring, and Colorado would benefit from adding to that.

Carolina Hurricanes: The Hurricanes are also a team that could consider making a push for Kapanen. This is especially the case if the Blues retain half of his salary. Kapanen would give the Canes more forward depth and could be a good fit on their third line. 

We will need to wait and see if either of these two teams ends up landing Kapanen this season from here.
