Oilers Rumors: Warren Foegele Linked to Atlantic Club

Warren Foegele is one of the many notable wingers who can hit the free agent market this offseason. Given the fact that he is due for a raise, the Edmonton Oilers will face some challenges if they hope to bring him back. As a result, there is a real chance that he will hit free agency this summer.

If the Oilers cannot come to terms on a new deal with Foegele this offseason, there is no question that he will generate a lot of interest in free agency. One specific team who is expected to make a push for him in this scenario is the Montreal Canadiens.

The Montreal Canadiens are looking to improve their middle six this offseason, as they want to take a step forward in their rebuild next season. When noting that Foegele had a very good season and is on the right side of 30, he could be a great fit in their lineup.

Foegele would provide the Canadiens with not only more offense but also experience and physicality. Because of this, he would be a strong addition to their roster if they can sign him

We will now need to wait and see if the Canadiens end up landing Foegele this summer. They will have a lot of competition if he hits the market, as he is exactly the kind of middle-six forward that all clubs would love to have.
