The Edmonton Oilers are gearing up for what could be a major move prior to the trade deadline, looking at this player to bolster their shot at being competitive.

Oilers Looking To Make Similar Splash At Deadline Like Last Year



The Edmonton Oilers are still a work in progress this season, which is a surprise to many. With their struggles in the net, they clearly are in need of a big move prior to the upcoming trade deadline.




The Oilers have had success at the deadline in recent history, adding Mattias Ekholm at the deadline last season. Ekholm has been a major contributor to the Oilers since his arrival last season.

Oilers Splash This Year is Likely to be For A Goaltender



In hopes of making a similar splash this season, the Oilers will likely look to nab a goaltender to help out Stuart Skinner in net down the stretch. One emerging candidate is the Detroit Red Wings netminder James Reimer.


All eyes will be on the Oilers as the deadline approaches after the holidays, as they look to make a splash and shore up their roster in hopes of making a push deep into the playoffs.
