Vladimir Tarasenko remains one of the biggest names available on the NHL free-agent market deep into the offseason. But that may not be the case for much longer.

Earlier this month, Tarasenko switched agencies, as the 31-year-old forward is now being represented by JP Barry and Pat Brisson of CAA, according to ESPN's Greg Wyshynski. And since then, there has reportedly been quite a few teams showing interest in signing Tarasenko.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman recently said during an appearance on NHL Network that the Ottawa Senators, San Jose Sharks and Florida Panthers have been in the mix to sign Tarasenko, while the Nashville Predators have "been in and out." Friedman noted several other teams have "kicked tires here and there," and that the Carolina Hurricanes are "definitely one of the teams in there, too."
