San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier is currently the subject of trade rumors in the NHL, as his future with the Sharks appears to be uncertain. Meier, 25, was drafted ninth overall by the Sharks in the 2015 NHL Draft and has been a key player for the team ever since.
However, with the Sharks struggling this season and sitting near the bottom of the standings, it seems that they may be open to moving Meier in exchange for draft picks or other assets. Meier has two years remaining on his contract, with at an annual average of $6 million per season.
Meier is known for his versatility and offensive abilities, he has scored 30 goals already in the season. He is also a physical player, with a reputation for delivering big hits and playing a hard-nosed style.
Several teams are reportedly interested in Meier, including the New York Islanders and the Philadelphia Flyers. The Islanders are currently in the market for a scoring winger, while the Flyers are looking to bolster their depth on the wing.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether the Sharks will actually pull the trigger on a Meier trade. He is still a valuable asset for the team, and they may decide that his production and leadership on and off the ice are too important to give up.
Regardless of what happens, the rumors surrounding Meier’s future are sure to keep fans guessing until the trade deadline in early March.
