After missing out on high-profile targets like Jake Guentzel and Tyler Toffoli, the Vancouver Canucks’ search for a scoring forward continues. According to NHL insider Frank Seravalli, the team has expressed genuine interest in acquiring San Jose Sharks forward Mikael Granlund.

Granlund’s acquisition from Pittsburgh in the Erik Karlsson trade initially looked like a throw-in, but the veteran has revitalized his career in San Jose. In 49 games this season, he’s recorded 38 points – an impressive feat considering the Sharks’ overall struggles. Sharks GM Mike Grier has praised Granlund, potentially signaling a willingness to move the Finn if the right offer comes along.

With just one year remaining on his $5 million AAV contract, the Sharks could be open to retaining salary, sweetening the deal for the Canucks. Granlund’s experience, two-way capabilities, and scoring touch could make him a valuable addition to Vancouver’s lineup as they look to push for a deep playoff run.
