The 29-year old is having another solid season in 2023-24, tallying 9 goals and 25 points in 60 games played, and with many Stanley Cup contenders looking for a solid veteran piece in their bottom-six, he could fetch a solid return for the Seattle Kraken.

It's unclear at this point which teams are zeroing in on him, but with so many contenders looking to make some upgrades, we may see several teams interested in him over the next three or four days.
