NHL Rumors: Oilers Making Goaltender Available on Trade Market

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Jack Campbell is having a disastrous first season with the franchise. According to a source connected with the Oilers, the team has held internal discussions around the possibility of trading Campbell before the March 3 trade deadline.

There's been some links to the Los Angeles Kings, an old team of Campbell who have Cal Petersen who has also struggled this season. A potential swap could be something both teams explore.

Another team in need of goaltending for the rest of this season and beyond are the Buffalo Sabres. They would likely be in the mix should the Oilers inform teams of Campbell's availability. The 30-year-old netminder is signed through the 2026-27 season at $5 million annually and holds a 10-team no-trade clause. So far in 15 games, 'Soup' has produced a 4.03 goals against average and a .876 save percentage.

Campbell's been an all-star in the past and was lights out for the Toronto Maple Leafs throughout the past few seasons. If he ends up getting traded from Edmonton, expect to hear either the Kings, Sabres, Chicago Blackhawks or potentially the Florida Panthers.
