Surprising Player Hits The NHL Waiver List - Should The Oilers Act Fast?

Published December 11, 2022 at 10:14 PM

Each and every NHL year there always ends up being a few ''what the heck?'' moments when NHL organizations place promising players on waivers, or fail to make them a qualifying offer, making them free-agents.

The most recent one was announced yesterday on Sunday, December eleventh and teams will want to act fast before this forward is claimed..

23 year old Finnish forward Eeli Tolvanen has officially hit waivers in a surprising way, Tolvanen was drafted 30th overall by the Nashville Predators organization and has developed as one of their organizations most highly-promoted prospect, should the Oilers inquire?

This player will benefit any team who may be struggling in the cap space category and are in need of a forward, although the Oilers may be in search for somebody to fill the role of Evander Kane, they may want to take a look at this young goal scorer for an affordable price instead.

This would be a low-risk high-reward situation for the Oilers as his cap hit is as little as $1.45 million through next season until he becomes a restricted free-agent.

The Predators continue to make mistakes, and teams should continue to take advantage of them.
