3 Potential Trade Destinations for Maple Leafs’ Timothy Liljegren

The Toronto Maple Leafs are preparing for what should be an incredibly busy offseason. After another first-round exit, the Maple Leafs are due for changes. Timothy Liljegren is one player on their roster who is generating buzz in the rumor mill. As a result, let’s go over three teams who could look to add him now. 

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks could use some help on the right side of their defense. When noting that they are rebuilding and Liljegren is a young defender with good upside, he certainly could stand out as a possible target for them. 

St. Louis Blues: The St. Louis should look to add another right-shot defenseman to their roster this offseason. With the club going through a retooling period, it would not be surprising if they were intrigued by someone like Liljegren. He would have the chance to get bigger minutes in St. Louis as well.

Chicago Blackhawks: The Chicago Blackhawks are expected to make some moves this offseason to help improve their roster. Their defense needs a lot of work, and a player like Liljegren would be a solid addition to their group because of it. He would fit into their top four and give their power play a boost.
