Report: Bieksa has entertained offers, wants to play close to family
If Kevin Bieksa finds a new home for the upcoming season, it will reportedly be close to where his family resides in California.
The veteran defenseman has entertained a few offers this summer, but is looking for a perfect fit, as his family will be staying in the Golden State regardless of where he ends up and he wants to be relatively close to them, according to Sportsnet's Dan Murphy.
Bieksa became an unrestricted free agent after spending three seasons with the Anaheim Ducks.
The 37-year-old was limited to 59 regular-season games and one playoff contest in 2017-18, logging third-pairing minutes while chipping in eight points before making his lone postseason appearance of the campaign.
He signed a two-year, $8-million deal with the Ducks on July 1, 2015.
