Former 13th Overall Pick Looking for a Way Out of St. Louis?

St. Louis Blues forward Jakub Vrana has found himself in an interesting situation early in the season. Despite being a former 13th overall pick and a talented player, he has been healthy scratched during two games since the season started.
With his pending unrestricted free agent status and the Blues potentially being sellers this season, Vrana is emerging as a notable trade candidate.

Jets Looking for Offensive Depth

The Winnipeg Jets, with their sights set on playoff contention this season, are one of the teams that could be eyeing Jakub Vrana.
Vrana's scoring ability and versatility as a forward could fit well into their plans.
Their need for additional offensive depth has been evident, and they may not want to wait too long before addressing it.
Waiting until the trade deadline could lead to missed opportunities or potentially higher asking prices. Thus, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Jets actively exploring a deal for Vrana sooner rather than later.
Acquiring Vrana early in the season would provide the Jets with more time to integrate him into their lineup and assess his impact. This early move could also allow them to focus on other issues within the lineup at the deadline.
