Hurricanes Rumors: Martin Necas Linked to Pacific Team

Carolina Hurricanes forward Martin Necas is generating plenty of buzz in the rumor mill right now. This is because the Hurricanes are expected to listen to offers for the star forward this summer, as they have bigger priorities to focus on, like Jake Guentzel and Seth Jarvis.

Due to this development, Necas has already been linked to several clubs. Now, a new team has entered the mix, as the Seattle Kraken are starting to be connected to the skilled forward.

It is not shocking in the slightest that the Kraken are expected to make a push for Necas this offseason. It is apparent that they need a high-impact scorer in their top six, and Necas has been one throughout his NHL career. As a result, he would be a major addition to the Kraken's roster if acquired.

After a disappointing season, the Kraken are ready to make some splashes this summer. Adding a player like Necas for stars like Matty Beniers and Jared McCann would be huge for the Kraken, so don't be surprised if they step up their efforts to land the Hurricanes forward this summer.

We will now need to wait and see if the Kraken end up landing Necas this offseason from here. The competition will be tough for them, as he is garnering plenty of interest already.
