Flames Rumors: Pacific Division Team "Most Interested & Logical Suitor" For Jacob Markstrom

According to NHL insiders like Jim Matheson, the Los Angeles Kings have emerged as the "most interested and logical suitor" for Jacob Markstrom's services.

As a team on the rise, the Kings are actively seeking to solidify their goaltending position, recognizing Markstrom's proven track record and consistent performance as a potential solution.

With recent reports indicating their pursuit of Linus Ullmark, the Kings' determination to upgrade their goaltending further underscores their keen interest in Markstrom.

This season, the 34-year-old holds a .906 SV%, 2.74 GAA, and two shutouts with a 23-21-2 record across 46 games played.

Despite potential obstacles such as Markstrom's $6.4 million cap hit and his no-movement clause, the Kings possess a promising array of trade assets, including prospects and draft picks.

Any potential deal would hinge on Markstrom's willingness to relocate to Los Angeles, something we saw Linus Ullmark use his no-move clause to make sure a trade to the Kings at the trade deadline did not happen.

Over his four-years with Calgary, Markstrom holds a .907 SV%, 2.62 GAA, with 15 shutouts and a 105-76-25 record across 211 games played.

With Markstrom's experience and playoff pedigree, the Kings view him as an ideal candidate to provide consistency and reliability in the crease.
