Ahead of the NHL Draft on Tuesday and the opening of free agency on October 9, TSNca keeps you up to date with all the latest rumors and speculation surrounding the pace of the NHL

The Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins are the teams on Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s commercial roster, TSN Hockey insider Darren Dreger confirmed, after reporting that the Edmonton Oilers were told they weren’t on the Arizona Coyotes defenseman’s short list he would forgo its non-movement clause for

Boston and Arizona, we engaged in trade talks for OEL ahead of Bill Armstrong’s arrival Not an easy deal Vancouver, as my colleague @FriedgeHNIC pointed out, is the other team on the OEL list Sharpen your Canucks fan pencils and try to make the numbers work on it

Things are believed to be escalating in Arizona on the OEL front, however, unless something changes, the Oilers have been told they are not on the shortlist of OEL squads would relinquish their protection commercial to go to

Dreger added that the Bruins and Coyotes were engaged in trade talks for Ekman-Larsson before Bill Armstrong arrived as general manager in Arizona

Dreger reported earlier this week that the Oilers are among the teams who are interested in the Coyotes captain Wednesday, Dreger added that the Coyotes are reportedly looking for a first-round pick and one of the developing young Oilers defensemen in exchange for Ekman-Larsson, pointing out Edmonton would likely need the Coyotes to take over another contract as well clear cap space

What is the farm? Ariz will want a first and probably one of the young developing Oilers Edmonton would also likely need the Coyotes to take over another contract to make up for the OEL headstart As we reported yesterday there was some discussion I don’t know not if there is a crisis https: // tco / JNuFv5vesZ

“They inquired (about him), sure,” Dreger said on Tuesday “There has been some talk about Ekman-Larsson, but go to CapFriendlycom and you can see it’s a big ticket and a comeback long term the other way There has been significant commercial interest expressed in Captain Coyotes and the Oilers are among the teams with some interest It is in the early stages and, again, given the milestone that has been reached by Ekman-Larsson, it won’t be an easy transaction for Ken Holland and the Oilers

« I would also put Boston in this group of teams with interest But also keep in mind that Ekman-Larsson has trade protection, so he’s going to, to some extent, handle this process. »

Ekman-Larsson, who is now No 1 on the TSN Trade Bait table, scored nine goals and 30 points in 66 games for the Coyotes last season He added one goal and four points in nine playoff games as Arizona lost in five games to the Colorado Avalanche in the first round

The 29-year-old has seven more years on an eight-year, $ 66 million contract with an AAV of $ 825 million The Oilers have $ 1126 million in projected cap space this offseason

Continuing with the Oilers, TSN senior hockey reporter Frank Seravalli tweeted Wednesday that the team has made progress in talks to bring restricted free agent Jesse Puljujarvi back to Edmonton

Seravalli notes that much of the discussion has centered on Puljujarvi’s ‘fit’ with the team, but believes that if he returns, it will likely be a one-year contract worth $ 1 $ 2 to $ 1 $ 5 million

Looks like #Oilers has made some headway in the talks to bring Jesse Puljujarvi back into the fold.The discussion was still mostly focused on the «  fit  » part of hockey, but I guess if / when he does come back, it’s that it’s finally on a one-year contract in the $ 12 to 1 $ 5 million range

Puljujarvi left the Oilers at the end of the 2018-19 season and played last season with Karpat in the SM-Liiga of Finland In 56 games with Karpat, Puljujarvi scored 24 goals and 53 points

Fourth overall pick for the Oilers in 2016, Puljujarvi struggled to carve out a regular place in the Oilers roster with several stints in the American Hockey League In his third year with the Oilers, the forward Finnish has four goals and nine points in 46 games

According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin met with former Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien two weeks ago to « assess his desire to continue playing. »

Russo reports that Guerin would be interested in Byfuglien if he chooses to resume his playing career, but believes that is far from done at this point

Byfuglien, a Roseau native Minn, was out all last season, agreeing to a mutual termination of the Jets contract in April He had already been signed for the 2020-21 season at $ 7 6 million caps reached

During the 2018-19 season, Byfuglien scored four goals and recorded 31 points in 44 games before adding two goals and eight points in six playoff games The 35-year-old hasn’t played since

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile has confirmed to the Tennessean that the team will not sign again pending unrestricted free agents Mikael Granlund or Craig Smith, noting that he plans to replace forwards from the ‘interior

« We’re going to make some changes, » Poile said of the team’s pending free agents question “Right away you have two guys who are in our top nine at Granlund and Smith who haven’t come back so that will open up some places for other younger guys

Granlund’s agent told The Athletic last month that his client will test the free market on October 9Acquired from the Minnesota Wild at the trade deadline last year, he scored 17 goals and 30 points in 63 games with the Predators this season He added one assist in four games in the team’s loss to the Arizona CoyotesHe just completed a three-year, $ 17 25 million contract signed with the Wild in 2017

Smith, 31, has spent his entire career with the Predators since being drafted by the team in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Draft He has 18 goals and 31 points in 69 games this season, but held up scoreless on return to play He has spent this season playing the last of a five-year, $ 21.5 million contract signed with Nashville in 2015

The Predators have $ 8 million in projected cap space this offseason with five players slated for unrestricted free agency
