Philip Broberg's time in Edmonton appears to be coming to an end and there are some new teams who could trade for the young Swede.

Struggles Faced by Broberg



Philip Broberg, picked 8th overall in 2019, has struggled to adapt to the NHL. In just 69 games, he's managed only 11 points, showing limited offensive impact.

However, he possesses a strong physical presence and impressive skating skills. To unlock his potential, he needs the right environment.

Potential Destinations for Broberg



Jesse Courville-Lynch's recent article on The Hockey Writers suggests three potential trade destinations for Philip Broberg: Canadiens, Senators, and Kings.


Each of these teams could be a great landing spot for Broberg as he is a toolsy player and each of these teams have a great development staff.

Montreal is young and has lots of opportunity for a player like Broberg. However, there is difficulty seeing a long term projection there.

Ottawa is set in their top four and we could see a situation similar to Erik Brannstrom where a player worthy of more ice time cannot get it due to a log jam.

Finally, LA would have Broberg in a similar role to the one he is now but the fresh start could help him finally break out. While these teams are options, Edmonton might trade Broberg elsewhere to bolster their roster.
