Oilers Rumors: GM "Likes" Red Wings Forward As Potential Addition

According to reports from both Jim Matheson and Lyle Richardson, Edmonton Oilers GM Ken Holland has maintained a longstanding interest in Detroit Red Wings forward David Perron.

Matheson's recent tweet hinted at Holland's sustained admiration for Perron, suggesting the possibility of a forthcoming deal.

Perron, soon to become an unrestricted free agent, stands as a potential target for the Oilers as they contemplate offseason moves to bolster their roster.

The speculation surrounding Perron's future with the Oilers intensifies as both sides appear to be inching closer to a potential agreement.

With Holland's keen eye on Perron and the forward's impending free agency status, trade discussions between the Oilers and the Red Wings gain traction.

However, the feasibility of such a deal heavily depends on the Red Wings' willingness to part ways with Perron and their stance amidst their playoff aspirations.

So far this season, the 35-year-old has scored 10 goals and 24 total points across 45 games played. Photo Credit: Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
