3 Edmonton Oilers Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024 Offseason

The Edmonton Oilers are expecting big things leading up to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, however for this segment, let's jump ahead to the offseason. GM Ken Holland is going to have a number of big decisions to make and there's very likely going to be some big changes coming in Edmonton, regardless of when their season finishes.

Here's three Oilers who will be on the trade market this summer:

Evander Kane

It's becoming more and more obvious, Kane is wearing out his welcome in Edmonton. From spats on the bench with teammates to the very same behind closed doors, it appears everyone's patience is running thin with Kane these days. The speedy power forward will be of interest to a number of teams as players with his skillset do not come around very often. Kane is owed $5.12 million for two more seasons so it would make sense for Holland to cash in while there's still some team control left on his contract. It's just going to be up to Kane where he gets dealt because of his no-movement clause.

Jack Campbell

Campbell went down the AHL and has been a true pro ever since. He's posted some solid numbers, with a .920 Sv.% in 29 games. The 32-year-old netminder is owed $5 million for three more seasons and holds a modified 10-team no-trade clause. The Columbus Blue Jackets were interested at one point and the same can be said of the LA Kings. Perhaps these two teams circle back in the summer.

Cody Ceci

The polarizing defenseman isn't a fan favorite in Edmonton, which seems to be a theme wherever he plays. Ceci has one season left on his deal at $3.25 million and does not have any trade protection. Through 70 games, the right-handed blueliner has recorded 20 points and look for Holland to move on from the veteran d-man either at the NHL Entry Draft or early on in July.
