NHL Rumors: 3 Forwards Bruins May Target This Offseason

As the Boston Bruins look to boost their offensive firepower this offseason, they have been linked to several key forwards, by Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.

Tyler Bertuzzi, previously with the Bruins during the 2022-23 season, is back on their radar. Known for his gritty style and versatility on the wings, Bertuzzi could significantly strengthen Boston's lineup.

His earlier departure was due to contractual terms, but with both sides having a deeper understanding of each other's needs and capabilities, a reunion could prove fruitful, especially to enhance the team’s secondary scoring.

After a slow start, the 29-year-old had a really nice second half of the season, recording 21 goals and 22 assists for 43 total points over 80 games played.

Jonathan Marchessault is another potent scorer under consideration.

Coming off a career-high 42-goal season with the Vegas Golden Knights, Marchessault's ability to find the back of the net would be a major boon for the Bruins.

Despite being 33, he continues to play with remarkable energy and could bring a new dynamic to the Bruins’ offensive strategies. With Vegas facing salary cap constraints, Boston could be an appealing destination for Marchessault, providing the Bruins with a high-caliber offensive talent.

This season, he put up a career-best 42 goals and 27 assists for 69 total points across 81 games played.

Patrick Kane rounds out the trio of targets, offering an elite level of playmaking and scoring.

After a brief stint with Detroit, the three-time Stanley Cup champion remains a highly sought-after player, known for his clutch performances in the playoffs.

His addition to the Bruins could complement David Pastrnak on the right wing, enhancing the team’s depth and offensive capabilities. Kane's veteran presence and knack for stepping up in critical moments would be invaluable for a Boston team aiming to make a deep postseason run.

This past season, the 35-year-old recorded 20 goals and 27 assists for 47 total points across 50 games played.
