3 Potential Free-Agent Destinations for Tyler Bertuzzi

Tyler Bertuzzi is one of the most notable players who can hit the free agent market on July 1. Both he and the Toronto Maple Leafs have expressed interest in getting a new deal done. However, if they can't come to terms, here are three teams who could look to sign him this offseason. 

Seattle Kraken: The Seattle Kraken need to improve their offense if they hope to be a bigger threat next season. They could use a top-six winger like Bertuzzi in their lineup because of it. He would not only give them more offense but would also give them a much-needed skilled forward who also plays with an edge. 

Chicago Blackhawks: The Chicago Blackhawks are expected to do some spending this offseason. Connor Bedard needs more offense around, and bringing in a winger like Bertuzzi would beneficial for the Original Six club because of it. In addition, he would give them another weapon to work with on their power play.

Utah HC: Utah HC is another team to pay attention to in the Bertuzzi sweepstakes. They are expected to pursue a high-impact forward this offseason, and Bertuzzi is just that when playing at his best. He could make real magic playing on a line with promising younger Logan Cooley.
