Erik karlsson has been made available for trade and there has been a major trade piece identified.

Karlsson to the Pens?

After months of trade speculation it appears that the San Jose Sharks might have found a new home for the 33-year-old defenseman.

According to The Athletic the Pittsburgh Penguins have shown interest and are in trade talks with the Sharks.

The addition of Erik Karlsson to the Penguins roster will be a major improvement and make them a tough team to face.

Who the Pens Would Give Up

As reported by PuckEmpire the Penguins would have to throw in Jeff Petry as a trade piece in order to get the Swedish defenseman.


Petry has had a career reassertion when he was a member of the Montreal Canadiens but struggled only collecting 31 points in 61 games.


The Penguins would offer up picks and prospects to help sweeten the deal but getting the veteran defenseman would help the Penguins try to get their core three of Crosby, Malkin, Letang another Stanley Cup.
