John Klingberg trade to the Edmonton Oilers
Will the Edmonton Oilers make a trade for Anaheim Ducks defenseman John Klingberg. They will need a 3rd team involved to complete the trade.

When John Klingberg signed a one-year deal with the Anaheim Ducks last offseason it was thought he would be a rental unless the Ducks were in playoff contention.

Since Anaheim is battling it out in tank nation for the right to draft Connor Bedard, Klingberg will be traded at some point today for draft assets.

Klingberg currently has 24 points (8g, 16a) in 50 games played this year for the Ducks.

Oilers interested in a John Klingberg trade

Craig Button was on TSN and stated if the Edmonton Oilers can make a trade for John Klingberg, that could push Edmonton to be one of the top contenders in the Western Conference along with the recent additions of Mattias Ekhlom and Nick Bjugstad

There is no word on what the asking price for Klingberg is, the issue though is fitting Klingberg’s contract into the Oilers lineup. Edmonton will likely need a 3rd team involved (Arizona Coyotes) to help eat some of his cap hit.

What are Oiler Fans saying about a John Klingberg trade?

Klingberg at 75% retained would be brilliant. Especially if only cost a second rounder and a 4th/5th to broker.

Doesn’t matter who they get, the Western Conference ain’t winning the cup.

Button has been missing the mark lately. Klingberg is not an upgrade anywhere on our defense core.
