Jacob Markstrom Calgary Flames Goalie Trade Rumors Los Angeles Kings
Could LA land Jacob Markstrom? Flames' goalie on the trade block, Kings seek playoff netminding upgrade.

With rumblings of a potential Jacob Markstrom trade surfacing this offseason, the question on many hockey minds is where he could land.

The Calgary Flames netminder is a proven, albeit aging, commodity with playoff experience and a Vezina Trophy nomination on his resume. While his recent numbers may not scream elite, he could be the final piece for a team on the cusp of greatness.

Could Jacob Markstrom Be the Answer for the Kings?

NHL Insiders like Jim Matheson at the Edmonton Journal believe the Los Angeles Kings could be the most interested and logical suitor for Markstrom’s services. The Kings are an ascending team looking for that next level of consistency in the crease. They reportedly missed out on a chance to land Linus Ullmark, highlighting their desire to upgrade their goaltending position.

Markstrom’s $6.4 million cap hit and no-movement clause present challenges, but the Kings have some intriguing trade chips to offer in terms of prospects and picks. A deal would hinge on Markstrom’s willingness to relocate to Los Angeles. His veteran leadership and stabilizing presence could be precisely what the Kings need for a deep playoff run.
