Despite being the subject of numerous NHL trade rumors throughout the summer, Brett Pesce has yet to see any of these rumors come to fruition.
What is the reason behind Pesce being in the rumor mill? He will be eligible for a new contract next offseason, and despite the Carolina Hurricanes‘ best efforts, they have been unable to sign him to an extension.
One team that continues to show interest in a Pesce trade is the Edmonton Oilers.
Will the Edmonton Oilers trade for Brett Pesce?
The Edmonton Oilers are expected to be top contenders for the Stanley Cup in the upcoming season. Their focus seems to be on strengthening their defense.
A trade for Brett Pesce makes sense but are the Oilers willing to give up the assets to make the trade happen?
NHL trade rumors have Edmonton offering up Cody Ceci, prospect Carter Savoie and a 2024 first-round draft pick for Pesce.
