NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers Forward Garnering Trade Interest

Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Puljujarvi has been in the rumor mill for a long time now, but he still remains with the team at the time of this writing. Yet, it appears that things could potentially change on that front soon, as NHL insider Frank Seravalli reported that the Oilers recently had talks with other teams about the 2016 third-overall pick.

Puljujarvi has had a rough 2022-23 season, as he has just four goals and 10 points in 45 games. Keep in mind, he just recorded a 36-point campaign in 65 games the year before, so he has had recent success. Yet, it appears that a change of scenery is needed for him to potentially regroup and find his previous form.

Puljujarvi is still only 24 years old and has the potential to be a very effective player in the NHL. As a result, we should see the market for his services continue to grow as we get closer to the deadline.
