Edmonton Oilers Prospect Wants to Sign Elsewhere

Rod Brind'Amour has turned around the Carolina Hurricanes from losers and jerks, into contenders yearly.

Could there be a Father-Son reunion happening soon? The former Edmonton Oilers prospect has decided to forego signing with the Oilers.

Skyler Brind'Amour was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the 6th round of the 2017 NHL draft, 177th overall, and since then has been in Quinnipiac's hockey program.

Brind'Amour will become a free agent on August 15th as he chose not to sign with Ken Holland the Oilers.

His reasoning is that it'll be harder to make the lineup, as the Edmonton Oilers as they are currently built are a deep and contending team.

Brind'Amour was a 32-point forward on a Frozen Four winning team, with a Father who brought a winning culture to Carolina. It's unfortunate the Oilers will lose another prospect, but if they win a cup with the core they have now, it's a minor setback.

The question is, will he sign in Carolina?
