NHL Free Agency: Shane Doan Reportedly Shows Interest In Joining Several Teams

After missing out on most of the bigge-named players in NHL free agency, the Detroit Red Wings have been rumored to be looking at Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan. They won't be the only team vying for his signature, though.

According to CSN Bay Area, Doan has narrowed his list down to five different teams: San Jose, Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Chicago and Detroit. Their report seems to indicate that the Sharks are the favorite on the list to pick up Doan's services:

Shane Doan is interested in coming to Sharks, according to his agent, Terry Bross.

But before you make plans to buy a Doan jersey, you should know San Jose isn’t the only suitor in which Doan has reportedly expressed interest.

Bross reportedly told the Canucks, Penguins, Blackhawks and Red Wings that his client has an interest in playing for them, too. At least 11 teams have reportedly called about Doan.

Several of the other cities have been reported to be close in talks with Doan as well, so take it with a grain of salt. The fact that Detroit is in the running and the Detroit Free Press has said the Wings "have a lead" should tell you that they at the very least should have a solid shot at the power forward.
