REPORT - The Edmonton Oilers and Canadiens Could Pull Off an Off-season Blockbuster

Published April 21, 2023 at 8:19 PM

Josh Anderson is a skilled winger who has been a key contributor to the Montreal Canadiens since his arrival in the 2020 offseason. However, with the Canadiens struggling to secure a playoff spot this season, there are rumors that Anderson could be on the move in the offseason, with the Edmonton Oilers being a possible destination.

The Oilers have been looking to bolster their offense, and Anderson would be a valuable addition to their roster. He has proven to be a versatile player, capable of playing on either wing and providing both scoring and physicality. His size and strength make him a difficult player to contain, and his speed and agility make him a dangerous player in transition.

While there are no guarantees that Anderson will be traded, the possibility of him joining the Oilers is certainly an exciting prospect for fans of the team. If the trade were to happen, it could provide the Oilers with the boost they need to take their offense to the next level and make a serious run at the Stanley Cup.

In Michael DeRosa's '3 trade destinations for Josh Anderson' piece, he stated the Edmonton Oilers are a team to keep an eye out:

Edmonton Oilers: The Edmonton Oilers are a team to watch extremely closely in the Anderson sweepstakes. It is clear that their forward group could use a bit of a change at right wing. He would be an upgrade over Kailer Yamamoto in their top six, so perhaps this is an avenue the Oilers consider.
