Cam Talbot for Oilers 16th Overall Pick

cam talbot trade rumors edmonton oilers

The New York Rangers are going to trade backup goaltender Cam Talbot at June 26-27 draft weekend. Larry Brooks of the NY Post said:

The safest bet going into the June 26-27 draft weekend is the Blueshirts will indeed trade Cam Talbot. Several well-placed sources report there is a 'significant' amount of interest in the soon-to-be 28-year-old goaltender, with inquiries not confined to clubs seeking a No. 1, but from some as well looking for a backup. The Rangers are seeking to maximize the return in draft picks for the netminder, who was the team’s most valuable player the second half of the season during Henrik Lundqvist’s extended absence.

Talbot had a record of 21-9-4 with a 2.21 goals-against average and .926 save percentage in 36 games. He is receiving interest from teams in need of a goaltender such as the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks.

The NY Rangers are asking for the Edmonton Oilers 16th overall pick, which they acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in a trade for David Perron. This would be a heavy price for the Oilers to pay, and the Rangers may need to add.
