Bruins Star Reportedly Blocks Trade to the Edmonton Oilers

Published November 14, 2023 at 1:47 PM

The Edmonton Oilers season is on the brink of collapse before we even hit December, and with so many expectations, they're still looking to turn it around and make a Stanley Cup push.

Boston Bruins star Linus Ullmark won't be joining the Oilers this season


Despite all the recent speculation, it appears as though the Boston Bruins won't be trading star goaltender Linus Ullmark to the Oilers, as he reportedly has them on his no-trade list.

Given his red-hot start to the year alongside Jeremy Swayman, it makes sense if there's many teams interested in the 2022-23 Vezina Trophy winner, but it appears as though as of right now, he'll be staying put as a part of the superstar tandem.

The Edmonton Oilers still need goaltending help desperately

After demoting Jack Campbell to the AHL, the Oilers still need plenty of help in net, as Stuart Skinner has taken a major step back this season, with the likes of Jacob Markstrom, Jordan Binnington, Dan Vladar and other names all still a possibility.

Ultimately, with their star forwards, the Oilers should be contending for the playoffs, but as of right now, they don't look like that team, so it's almost a guarantee that they land a new goaltender this season, but we can confirm it won't be coming from Boston.
