  • NHL insider Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported yesterday that the Oilers were close to moving Puljujarvi to the New York Rangers, but just couldn’t close the deal.
  • The Edmonton Oilers are believed to have spoken to clubs that had interest in winger Jesse Puljujarvi before the Dec. 1 RFA signing deadline.
  • That includes the New York Rangers, St. Louis Blues, and Tampa Bay Lightning.
  • Friedman believes they discussed Lias Andersson with the Rangers, but couldn’t agree on a deal.
  • Friedman’s most recent 31 Thoughts on the subject:

Before the Dec. 1 signing deadline, word is the Oilers re-engaged some of the clubs who had shown previous interest in Jesse Puljujarvi. That includes the Rangers, St. Louis and Tampa Bay. I believe they discussed Lias Andersson with New York, and think Puljujarvi wanted to go there, but things couldn’t close.

  • Perhaps those discussions will resume in the off-season.
  • The Oilers will probably move Puljujarvi sometime in June, likely around the 2020 NHL Draft weekend.
