Oilers looking to reunite with Stanley Cup Champion

The Oilers are looking to solidify their bottom 6 depth, and are currently one of the favorites to land Patrick Maroon in a potential reunion. Maroon, played 3 seasons with the Oilers, getting a total of 86 points. The 35 year old is currently on the Minnesota Wild who sit 27th in the NHL, as their playoff hopes keep slipping away by the day. On television, insider Kevin Weekes stated the following;
«The recipe book for winning Stanley Cups,» Weekes said of Maroon. «He's won three, he's great in the room, he has some offensive touch, he brings toughness to the table and experience. And, man, oh man, is he great in the dressing room. He would be a valuable piece to any team that is a contender.»

Maroon has 3 Stanley cup wins across 3 consecutive years, 2019 with the St. Louis Blues, 2020 and 2021 with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He did his role as a respectable bottom 6 forward with these teams with many respect to his name. You won't see him much on the stat sheet, but adding a guy like Pat Maroon to your locker room will benefit any team in the post-season.
