TRADE: Edmonton Oilers and Detroit Red Wings Complete Multi-Player Deal

The Edmonton Oilers have found a home for two forwards as they've completed a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. The Oil send Kailer Yamamoto and Klim Kostin to the Red Wings for 'future considerations'.

Edmonton was looking to move out some money as they look to retool on the fly. General manager Ken Holland had no choice to move out some talent for nothing. Yet, another salary dump move in the NHL as the flat cap is creating some causalities.

Yamamoto recorded 10 goals and 25 points in 58 games, which was followed up by a Stanley Cup Playoffs where he posted one goal and four points in 12 postseason games. He's due $3.1 million in 2023-24 and is a restricted free agent at season's end.

Kostin is a pending restricted free agent, 6-foot-4 and has some untapped potential. He recorded 21 points in 57 games which was a career high in games played and production. He'll look to continue this success on the Red Wings.

Edmonton now has over $8 million in cap space and have some room to add a defenseman and a top-six forward. Expect more news from both clubs this week.
