Flames Rumors: 3 Potential Trade Destinations for Jacob Markstrom

Calgary Flames goalie Jacob Markstrom is one of the NHL's top trade candidates heading into the 2024 NHL Offseason. He was almost moved at the deadline this year, and the Flames are expected to shop him again this summer. As a result, let's discuss three possible trade destinations for him.

New Jersey Devils: The New Jersey Devils were close to acquiring Markstrom at the deadline, and it would be shocking if they did not try again this summer. It is apparent that they need a true starting goaltender if they hope to bounce back from their underwhelming season. Markstrom would give them that. 

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Toronto Maple Leafs could look to improve between the pipes this offseason after another early playoff exit. Markstrom would form a strong 1A/1B tandem with Joseph Woll if acquired, so it could be an avenue that the Maple Leafs consider. 

Los Angeles Kings: The Los Angeles Kings are going to push incredibly hard to land a starter this offseason. While they re-signed David Rittich, they are unlikely to bring back starter Cam Talbot. Markstrom would be an upgrade over the veteran.
