Senators Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Erik Brannstrom

The Ottawa Senators are testing Erik Brannstrom’s trade market. When noting that he is a young defenseman with upside, there is a good chance that teams are interested in bringing him in. Due to this, let’s discuss two teams who could consider acquiring him now.

Chicago Blackhawks: The Chicago Blackhawks need some help on the left side of their defensive group, so they could be big players in the Brannstrom. He would be a fit for their top four and work well on their power play. With that, they have cap space to work with.

San Jose Sharks: The San Jose Sharks have one of the worst defenses in the NHL, so they could surely use some help. Taking a look at a young defenseman like Brannstrom would make sense for them because of it. He would get big-time minutes and could take a step forward in his development because of it. 

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