NHL Rumors: Insider Names 3 Edmonton Oilers Trade Candidates

The Edmonton Oilers are looking to make additions to their roster this summer. The problem? They have very limited cap space. As a result, on TSN Insider Hockey Trading, it was reported by Darren Dreger that Kailer Yamamoto, Cody Ceci, and Warren Foegele could be on the move this summer.

Yamamoto has been one of the main names in the rumor mill as of late and understandably so. He is entering the final year of his deal and carries a $3.1 million cap hit. He also posted just 25 points in 58 games, and that production just is not enough with his current cap hit. 

Ceci is a player who could garner interest in the trade market. Although the Oilers are looking to find an upgrade from him in their top four, the 29-year-old is serviceable and teams needing help on the right side should call. In 80 games, he had one goal, 14 assists, and a plus-11 rating this season. 

Foegele has been no stranger to trade talk. His $2.75 million cap is the primary culprit for this, but teams that have cap space should seriously consider acquiring the 6-foot-2 winger. He is a serviceable third-liner that provides grit and decent secondary scoring (13 goals and 28 points in 67 games this season). 

We will need to wait and see what the Oilers do with these three from here, but expect Edmonton to be busy.
