Through much of the March trade deadline, the Oilers had Jesse Pujujarvi, marked as a player to be traded pretty much to every NHL team out there.

The speculation ran rampant with numerous articles and pundits speaking about players attached and teams attached to him, however, it wasn't till a few days before trade deadline day that he was moved to the Carolina Hurricanes.

For the last two games, The Hurricanes promoted Pujujarvi to the top line alongside Jarvis and Aho.




The hope was to create more offence and be more effective. It was quite the opposite effect where the Carolina Hurricanes shut out both games and the second game was three to nothing against New Jersey.

In the two games that he has played, he has no points and he is a - 1. The jury is out on whether he can turn his game around and so far it doesn't look highly likely.

Pujujarvi is in the final year of his deal of $3 million and will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

It remains debatable whether any team will be willing to take him on and try him out as he has not settled well with his NHL career so far.
