NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers Linked to Sharks Defenseman

The Edmonton Oilers are looking to beef up they are defensive depth for the postseason. They have been linked to defensemen like Jakob Chychrun, Joel Edmundson, and John Klingberg, but they also could have themselves an underrated target in San Jose Sharks defenseman Jaycob Megna.

Although San Jose has had another miserable season, Megna has been a rare bright spot for them. The longtime AHL defenseman has cemented himself a spot on their top pairing with star defenseman Erik Karlsson. His reliable defensive play and strong physicality are two major reasons behind this, so he certainly could stand out as a trade target for the Oilers to consider.

Although Megna is not a star, he has shown this campaign that he can handle himself against NHL competition, and he could be a decent addition to Edmonton’s bottom pairing. We will have to wait and see if the Oilers decide to make a legitimate push for him from here.
