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's agent, Ben Hankinson, confirmed to The Athletic's Michael Russo that the Minnesota Wild have shown interest, too. But cap space is an issue for the Wild, making a Maroon signing unlikely.

Cap concerns aren't a problem in New Jersey ($23 million) or Arizona ($14.8 million), meaning a deal with either club could come together easily.

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.
