Rumour Report: List of suitors for Karlsson continues to grow

A quick update to the Erik Karlsson Sweepstakes.

  • Reports now suggest the Vegas Golden Knights and Nashville Predators have had discussions with the Ottawa Senators about Erik Karlsson. 
  • They join a growing list of teams potentially interested. It's not entirely clear how many teams have made serious pitches, but the Tampa Bay Lightning are one of them - despite GM Steve Yzerman tempering expectations earlier in the day.
  • Some have suggested Toronto as a potential spot - they do have the assets, but are they willing to give them up? Possible, but not likely.
  • At least one team is in the Western conference, but which team that is hasn't been pinned down just yet.

  • The Bruins and Ducks could be possibilities as well - considering they have been connected to Ryan McDonagh.
  • At least 7 teams are believed to have inquired on Karlsson.
  • This story is developing minute to minute. Stay tuned.
