Philip Broberg's Path to Oilers' Lineup

Amidst the Oilers' impressive defensive lineup, the position of blueliner Philip Broberg is being questioned. Bruce McCurdy from the Edmonton Journal ponders if the left-side defensive depth could hinder Broberg's progress. Darnell Nurse and Mattias Ekholm occupy the prime two slots, and Brett Kulak's $2.75 million deal with three years left complicates matters.

Challenges for Broberg

For Broberg, breaking into the Oilers' lineup might be a challenge. With established players on the left side, he faces obstacles as he strives to secure a consistent NHL spot. His aim of cementing his place this season comes with challenges.


A Potential Solution

Broberg's opportunity to shine might lie in the preseason if he's given the chance to play on his off-side. This could be his pathway to carving out a meaningful role in the Oilers' lineup for the 2023-24 season.
