Predators Rumors: 3 Offseason Suitors for Jason Zucker

At the 2024 NHL Trade Deadline, the Nashville Predators acquired veteran winger Jason Zucker from the Arizona Coyotes. Overall, he is having a pretty solid season split between the two clubs, posting 13 goals and 31 points in 61 games thus far. As a result, if the Predators don't re-sign him and he hits the market, there should be interest there. Let's go over three clubs that could target him now. 

Seattle Kraken: The Seattle Kraken are going to look for help on the wing this offseason. There's no doubt that they need a bit more production in their middle six, and Zucker would certainly have the potential to give them that when looking at his career. 

Chicago Blackhawks: While the Chicago Blackhawks are rebuilding, there's an expectation that they will look to add to their forward group this offseason. Connor Bedard needs more players to work with, and Zucker could perform well on a line with him. Keep in mind, Zucker had 27 goals just back in 2022-23. 

Ottawa Senators: The Ottawa Senators could be a club that looks at Zucker this offseason. It is not a secret that they could use some help in their top nine, as they traded Vladimir Tarasenko at the deadline. With that, fellow winger Dominik Kubalik is a pending UFA. Thus, they could consider bringing in a player like Zucker to give them a bit more offense.
