Edmonton Oilers Rumors: GM Trying to Acquire Coyotes' Jakob Chychrun

The Edmonton Oilers and Arizona Coyotes continue to discuss a blockbuster deal. The Oilers are trying hard to land 'Yotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun as TSN hockey insider Darren Dreger reports on the latest:

The Coyotes are asking for a ton and Oilers general manager Ken Holland may need to get off his wallet to make it happen. Edmonton will need to send at least two first-round picks to acquire Chychrun and have both of their selections at the '23 and '24 draft. It's likely a young defenseman is sent to the Coyotes along with the draft picks.

The Coyotes are talking to a number of teams on Chychrun, including the Washington Capitals, St Louis Blues, and Ottawa Senators. From all accounts it sounds like he'll finally get his wish and be dealt out of the desert this week.
