Senators Rumors: 2 Potential Trade Destinations for Egor Sokolov

After clearing waivers, Ottawa Senators forward Egor Sokolov could be a player who the club moves. When noting that he is a solid prospect with good upside, there could be some interest in him during the season. As a result, let’s discuss two potential landing spots for the winger.

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks are in a position to take a chance on a promising prospect like Sokolov. This is especially so when noting that their depth on the wing is not necessarily strong. As a result, he would have a good chance of being a regular in their lineup if acquired. With that, he could even get some time on their power play.

Philadelphia Flyers: The Philadelphia Flyers could also make sense as a potential landing spot for Sokolov. The Flyers have embraced a full-on rebuild and are always open to the idea of bringing in younger talent. Due to this, if Sokolov ends up officially being made available for trade, look for Philadelphia to be in the mix.
