There are teams doing some last-minute shopping for Patrick Maroon.
The St. Louis Blues are reportedly closing in on an agreement with the free-agent forward. However, a deal hasn't been signed yet, and the New Jersey Devils and Arizona Coyotes are showing interest in the hulking winger, reports Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic.
Maroon, a St. Louis native, might take a hometown discount. That would help the Blues, as with just $5 million in cap space and restricted free-agent defenseman Joel Edmundson needing a new contract, dollars are tight in St. Louis.
Maroon, 30, recorded 43 points in 74 games last season, split between the Edmonton Oilers and Devils. He potted a career-high 27 goals with the Oilers in 2016-17.
