Former Philadelphia Flyer Sean Walker to Find New Home Soon?

Published April 2, 2024 at 9:52 PM

Sean Walker was a highly sought out defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers at the trade deadline, with the Colorado Avalanche winning the sweepstakes to get his services for the remainder of the season. Walker is a free agent after this season and he will have a number of suitors, as a right-handed defenseman is always a hot commodity on the free agent market.

Walker on the season has 9 goals and 18 assists for 27 points on the year, he can play in all situations on the ice and is a right-handed shot. There are many teams that will look to sign him, but these three seem like the most likely.

Buffalo Sabres: He would slot right away in the top four defensemen for the Sabres and they are weak down the right side of their Defense. Buffalo should have a bounce back year next year and could woo Walker there with a big money contract for a young team.

Ottawa Senators: The Senators need a lot of help on Defense, especially on the right side. They have been terrible this year and look for them to target Walker along with other top four defensemen.

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Leafs were the other team in on Walker at the trade deadline, it is no secret they want to bring him in to sure up their right side of their defense. They could be one of the first to target Walker this offseason.

Dark Horse team: Philadelphia Flyers
Walker loved his time in Philly and has gone on record saying he did not want to leave. Could he make his way back their if Philly comes calling?
