3 Edmonton Oilers Not Expected Back in 2023-24

The Edmonton Oilers are hoping to make a long Stanley Cup Playoff run this season as general manager Ken Holland made a few moves to prior to the trade deadline. While the changes were necessary, they're also going to continue into the summer months as the Oilers will be busy this upcoming offseason. Let's jump ahead and showcase three players who aren't expected back in 2023/24:

Jack Campbell

Yes, there's been buyout talk already brewing in Edmonton and there's going to be a number of teams interested in Jack Campbell on the trade market this summer. The Oilers will have to retain some salary as Campbell's $5 million per season is too rich for someone who has posted a .882 save % this season.

Ryan Murray

Injury troubles play a major role here as defenseman Ryan Murray isn't expected to be back in 2023/24. Murray is a 29-year-old pending unrestricted free agent who has only appeared in 13 games this season, posting three assists. He hasn't played a full season since 2015 and will be in tough to accept anything more than a one-year league minimum deal this upcoming offseason.

Mattias Janmark

Versatile forward Mattias Janmark is likely going to be allowed to walk come July 1st. In his first season in Edmonton, Janmark has recorded only six goals in 50 games and has also played in four AHL games for the Oilers affiliate. At $1.2 million, the Oilers haven't necessarily gotten their monies worth on this contract.
