Teams With An Interest In Jonathan Drouin


The Colorado Avalanche may have interest too, via Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

Tampa Bay assistant general manager Pat Verbeek was at the Colorado-St. Louis game Wednesday, and that's just one of the reasons it's not outlandish to ponder whether the Avalanche and Roy -- who coached against MacKinnon and Drouin in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and was on the losing end of a seven-game QMJHL final in 2013 -- might be looking at trying to acquire Drouin. Also, the Lightning will be in Denver to face the Avalanche Tuesday.

Mike Johnston of Sportsnet with this...

The Lightning have approximately $2 million in cap space to work with, which could potentially complicate things since they’d likely require at least one quality roster player in return for Drouin. It’s believed the Lightning are looking for a right-handed, puck-moving defenceman and/or a forward with a decent amount of term remaining on his contract.

With that in mind, here are seven teams in a position to make a push to acquire Drouin in the near future.
