The Ottawa Senators are looking to unload forward Mathieu Joseph to free up the cap space to sign Shane Pinto to a contract extension.
NHL trade rumors have Joseph linked to the Philadelphia Flyers, but another team may be a better fit: the San Jose Sharks.
Will the Ottawa Senators trade Mathieu Joseph to the San Jose Sharks?
TSN NHL Analyst Dave Poulin confirmed on Ottawa 1200 radio that the Philadelphia Flyers are interested in Joseph, but the team is seeking a top-tier prospect in exchange.
Poulin suggested that the Senators could trade with the San Jose Sharks and that Joseph would fit well in the Sharks’ top-six lineup.
NHL trade rumors have the Sharks asking for Lassi Thomson and Joseph for a trade to be completed with the Sens.
