While on Hockey Night in Canada, Jeff Marek reported that Florida Panthers forward Owen Tippett is available via trade.

For Tippett to be moved, it’s clear that the Panthers would want to land a big-name player. At this juncture, they are aiming to win a Stanley Cup. When seeing as how they have a 31-9-5 record and have the most points in the league, it is fair to say that they may be capable of doing so. Therefore, Tippett could be a major piece going back in a big trade this deadline season. 

The Panthers selected Tippett with the 10th overall pick of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old hasn’t blossomed into that legitimate top-six forward yet, but he certainly still has the potential to. If he were to join a team that has less depth offensively, it would allow him the chance to receive more playing time. That, in turn, could allow him to be a bigger threat offensively. 

In 39 games this season, Tippett has five goals, eight assists, and a plus-3 rating. Throughout his 91-game NHL career thus far, he has 13 goals and 32 total points. At a minimum, he’s a solid third-line option, but one has to wonder if he will improve from here. This and his first-round pick status do give him decent trade value. 

Alas, if the Panthers make a big splash before the deadline, don’t be surprised to see that Tippett is one of the main pieces heading the other way.
