Wild Rumors: Patrick Maroon Linked To Former Team

The Edmonton Oilers have been at the forefront of recent NHL trade discussions, with strong indications of their new interest in acquiring Patrick Maroon from the Minnesota Wild.

The Oilers' pursuit of Maroon underscores their eagerness to fortify their lineup, particularly for the playoffs, by tapping into his renowned physicality and veteran experience.

So far this season, the 35-year-old recorded four goals and 16 total points across 47 games played with the Wild.

Maroon's potential addition to the Oilers' roster could prove transformative, as he may slot into their third line alongside McLeod and Perry, creating a well-rounded combination of skill, grit, and leadership.

Such a move could significantly bolster the team's competitiveness and strengthen their chances of making a deep playoff run.
