Latest Edmonton Oilers trade rumors
Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman is reporting the Edmonton Oilers checked in on Washington Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky, the Capitals are looking for a couple of mid-to-high round draft picks in a trade.
The Oilers like Detroit’s Andreas Athanasiou, whose speed seems a perfect complement to Connor McDavid, but there’s no guarantee the Detroit Red Wings want to do anything and the price would be costly.
Friedman also reports that the Oilers are interested in a few players from Chicago. He has not mentioned any names but something big could be in the works.
Will the LA Kings trade Jake Muzzin?
TSN: The LA Kings are looking to trade Jake Muzzin but the asking price is very high. Bob McKenzie is reporting the Kings are asking for a first-round pick and a top prospect.
McKenzie states, “Now, whether it gets met or not, depends how many teams want him, what the other options are. And to your point, it’s early yet. You’ve got to see some other deals drop to know the actual market value for players like that is going to get set at. We don’t even know what the rental prices are going to be.”
Muzzin, 29, carries a $4 million cap hit through next season.
Muzzin leads in both blocked shots (85) and hits (108) while regularly contributing on both the powerplay and penalty kill for the Kings.
