Hurricanes Rumors: 2 Potential Trade Destinations for Antti Raanta

After clearing waivers, Carolina Hurricanes goalie Antti Raanta is a player to watch in the rumor mill. Teams around the league could look to add Raanta, as although he has struggled this season, he has been a consistent 1B goalie throughout his career before it. Thus, let's go over two teams who could take a shot on Raanta now. 

LA Kings: The Kings are a team to pay attention to with Raanta. They have been on the market for a backup with Pheonix Copley placed on LTIR, and Raanta would be a great fit. His cap hit is affordable, and he would give Cam Talbot a bit more insurance. 

Seattle Kraken: The Kraken are browsing the trade market for a goalie. Their goaltending is a big reason for their struggles this season, so they could look to add Raanta. He would compete for their starting role, and if a change of scenery helped him bounce back, he would easily be their top netminder.

We will need to wait and see if either team lands Raanta this season from here.
