Winnipeg Jets Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Mason Appleton

Mason Appleton is starting to pick up some steam in the rumor mill as of late. When noting that he is a decent bottom-six forward, there should be interest in him as the year rolls on. Let’s discuss two clubs who could target him.

New York Rangers: The Rangers are likely to look to improve their bottom six before the deadline passes, much like they have had for the last few seasons. Appleton would fit nicely on their third or fourth line and be an option for their PK.

Detroit Red Wings: The Red Wings are off to a hot start in 2023-24 and will be buyers if they keep this play up for the whole season. Their bottom six could use a boost, so don’t be surprised if they consider Appleton as the year continues. 

Let’s see if either the Red Wings or Rangers end up landing Appleton before the trade deadline passes from here.
