Golden Knights Rumors: 3 Offseason Suitors for Jonathan Marchessault

Jonathan Marchessault is one of the top pending unrestricted free agents (UFAs) who can hit the market this offseason. This is because he is a proven top-six forward who makes a significant impact with his scoring. If the Vegas Golden Knights are unable to re-sign him before free agency begins, there will be a lot of interest in him. Let's discuss three specific teams who could look to sign him from here. 

Los Angeles Kings: The Los Angeles Kings are likely going to look to add to their top six this offseason. It is clear that they could use a high-impact sniper as they look to become legitimate contenders. Due to this, Marchessault is a player who certainly could grab their attention. 

New York Islanders: The New York Islanders need far more scoring if they hope to improve in the Eastern Conference. Scoring has been an issue with this team for quite some time, and bringing in a star like Marchessault could help change that. This is especially so when noting that he would make some real magic with Mat Barzal. 

Utah: Don't be surprised if Utah ends up making a notable push for Marchessault this offseason. Management has made it clear that they want to do some serious spending this offseason, as they want to be competitive immediately. Because of this, a sniper like Marchessault would make serious sense for them.
