REPORT: ONE TEAM REPORTEDLY SET TO ACQUIRE FORWARD JESSE PULJUJARVI

BY S. HARPER
There's no secret that the Edmonton Oilers General Manager Ken Holland is looking to trade forward Jesse Puljujarvi. The former 2016 4th overall pick has yet to live up to the expectations the Oilers were hoping when they drafted him.

The 24 year old forward is going to be a restricted free agent at the end of the season and has had a couple teams show interest, but yet to have found a legitimate buyer.

However, according to the Edmonton Sun, there is one General Manager that seems to be very interested in acquiring Puljujärvi's services, that Gm is Anaheim Ducks Pat Verbeek. The Ducks Gm was in attendance Monday night in Minnesota and Tuesday night in Nashville to scout out Puljujärvi in during the Oilers road trip.

The Oilers are looking for a second round pick in return for Jesse Puljujärvi but will likely have to lower their asking price to get a deal done as no Gm has stepped up to pay that price so far.
