Edmonton Oilers Showing Significant Interest In Veteran All-Star

The Edmonton Oilers are linked to a veteran all-star who has the potential to revitalize their second line.

Oilers Linked To Perron

It was recently revealed by reporter Jim Matheson that the Edmonton Oilers have had serious interest in David Perron for some time now.


Corey Perry was his usual sneaky, excellent self playing RW with Draisaitl vs Ducks but not sure if that is long-term. One winger Holland has long liked: little bit younger, greasy David Perron, UFA in Detroit. Wings would have to eat half his $4.75 m

Perron is producing at a solid rate this year with 10 goals and 24 points through 45 games. He is a pending UFA and could be a solid rental for the Oilers to target.

Alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl on the second line, Perron could be the piece that puts the Oilers offense over the top.
