Bruins Have 3 Good Center Targets for the 2022 Offseason

After an early playoff exit, the Boston Bruins are due to make some changes to their roster. One area that general manager (GM) Don Sweeney should focus on is the center position. They, of course, lost David Krejci last summer, and Patrice Bergeron has not committed to playing the 2022-23 season. Luckily for the Bruins, this year’s free agent class has some very intriguing centers. Here are three who the Bruins should consider targeting if they each hit the open market.

Sharks’ 3 Trade Targets During the 2022 Offseason

The San Jose Sharks are in limbo entering the 2022 offseason. The team is nowhere near ready to compete, and with issues present in the forward, defensive, and goaltending core, there does not seem to be much hope for the squad entering the 2022-23 season. The draft should allow the team to add a few more talented players to the prospect pool, but no one drafted will be ready to slot in the lineup right off the bat. Additionally, without a general manager selected, the Sharks’ options are relatively limited until a decision is made.

Overseas Notes: Blankenburg, Verbeek, Merkulov

Nick Blankenburg’s World Championship is over. Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports that the Blue Jackets’ rookie defenseman has left Team USA due to injury. Blankenburg sustained a knee injury during the international tournament in Finland and decided to return home. However, Hedger adds that the injury is not supposed to be severe and that Blankenburg’s health by the start of next season is not in doubt. Even with the early exit from the Worlds, Blankenburg has had quite the unforgettable year. The 24-year-old defender had a career season as the senior captain of Michigan, recording 14 goals and 29 points in 38 games en route to a Frozen Four appearance. He then signed with Columbus as an undrafted free agent and proceeded to record three points in seven NHL games down the stretch. Blankenburg earned a spot with Team USA at the World Championship and played in four games with the team. He will look to continue his success streak by winning a regular role with the Blue Jackets next season.
