NHL Trade Rumors: Jordan Eberle to New York Islanders

nhl trade rumors jordan eberle

The Edmonton Oilers are looking to trade Jordan Eberle within the next couple of days. NHL insider Darren Dreger believes Eberle is headed to the New York Islanders in exchange for a defenseman.

For the sake of having some fun and throwing a name out there, we know that Travis Hamonic is in play. The Islanders are going to have to do something with a defenseman. It’s either Calvin De Haan or Travis Hamonic because they can’t protect four of those guys – they can only protect three. And they want a top-six guy in return. For the cost certainty that you get in Travis Hamonic – man, if you could swing that deal I think I’d make it work.

Since the Islanders can only protect three defensemen at the expansion draft, they'll likely trade Hamonic or De Haan. Hamonic has a cap hit of $3.86M for three more seasons. De Haan will be a restricted free agent this summer and is eligible for arbitration. Eberle has a cap hit of $6M for two more seasons.

The Colorado Avalanche are also interested in a trade for Jordan Eberle.
