3 Potential Free-Agent Destinations for Cam Atkinson

With Cam Atkinson being bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers, he will now be looking for a new home. While the veteran forward had a down season, there still should be some interest in him because of his past success. Let’s look at three teams who could try to sign him now.

Carolina Hurricanes: The Carolina Hurricanes could be on the lookout for some scoring depth this offseason, as they have multiple pending UFA forwards. Thus, they could consider taking a flier on a player like Atkinson if it's a cheap one-year deal. He could be a decent option for their third line and second power-play unit as well. 

Seattle Kraken: The Seattle Kraken could look at Atkinson this summer. They are expected to make some big changes to their forward group after a rough year. If Atkinson bounced back, he could be a strong addition to their middle six. 

Washington Capitals: The Washington Capitals could be intrigued by the prospect of Atkinson. They need depth scoring, and Atkinson has the potential to do just that. If it is a cheap deal, this potential landing spot could make sense for both parties.
