Thomas Vanek might be reunited with Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou when training camp opens.
The trio had success together in 2016-17 before Vanek was traded to Florida. He also played alongside Darren Helm and Gustav Nyquist. "Whichever line Vanek is on, he seems to make the other people better offensively," said coach Jeff Blashill. "That is the intrigue of having him back, is not only is he going to add his own production, but he can help some of our young players, whether it is a [Athanasiou], whether it is a [Michael] Rasmussen — whoever he is paired with, he can help them produce at an even greater rate."
