Now that Bo Horvat is off the trading block, forward-needy teams will turn their attention to the biggest remaining name on the market — Timo Meier.

The 26-year-old winger leads the San Jose Sharks with 28 goals in 51 games and, unlike Horvat, is under team control after this season. Meier, whose expiring contract carries a $6 million cap hit, will be a restricted free this summer. He is owed a $10 million qualifying offer, however, which could give interested teams pause.

Meier is a high-volume shooter, trailing only David Pastrnak and Jack Hughes in shots on goal this season. He ranks seventh in scoring chances in all situations (187), though he is behind only Auston Matthews in 5-on-5 chances (133).

Only five players have more expected goals than Meier (25.4), which reflects well on Meier’s ability to produce high-quality offence.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, Meier uses his solid frame to hold off defenders in front of the net and along the boards. He is tied for ninth in both rebound recoveries (58) and puck-battle wins in the offensive zone (75).
