The Edmonton Oilers are gearing up for a playoff push, and the NHL trade deadline is fast approaching. With March 8th looming, the Oilers’ management is exploring options to bolster their offense. The target? Anaheim Ducks veteran forward Adam Henrique.

TSN’s Darren Dreger, a leading voice in NHL trade whispers, indicates that Edmonton is interested in adding a scoring presence to support Leon Draisaitl’s line. While a top-six acquisition would be the perfect fit, the Oilers’ savvy general manager Ken Holland is also reportedly eyeing Henrique’s potential impact as a third-line center.

Oilers Seeking Scoring Boost, Adam Henrique on Radar

Henrique, a seasoned NHL campaigner, carries a $5.825 million cap hit but is poised to enter unrestricted free agency after this season. Currently, he’s compiled 16 goals and 36 points in 54 games for the Ducks, demonstrating his consistent goal-scoring ability. A move to Edmonton could reinvigorate Henrique as he chases his seventh 20-goal season.

While the Oilers’ primary focus might lie in landing a top-six star, a player of Henrique’s caliber would bring experience, scoring touch, and leadership qualities to the team. Could this be a savvy move by Holland to address multiple needs?
