The Edmonton Oilers have elevated their defensive game with the addition of Mattias Ekholm, who now stands as one of the top four defensemen in the entire NHL. This transformational move occurred at the trade deadline last season when Tyson Barrie was sent to Nashville in exchange for Ekholm.


During the playoffs, Ekholm showcased his ability to shut down the opposition when it mattered most. Recently, Ekholm's player card was unveiled, further solidifying his status as an elite defenseman. His WAR (Wins Above Replacement) percentages provide clear evidence of his impact, confirming that he is indeed among the NHL's top four blue-liners.
