Insider drops a bomb on a Kent Hughes' offer sheet to Evan Bouchard

BY MARCO    JUNE 18, 2023  (12:25)
Defenseman Evan Bouchard has been on a roll this season, especially in the playoffs, accumulating 17 points in 12 games.

The 23-year-old fullback will be a free agent with compensation on July 1, and the Oilers are so tight under the salary cap that Ken Holland will have a hard time getting along with him.

Whistleblower Frank Seravalli discussed the possibility of Bouchard receiving an offer sheet, and targeted the Habs directly. Kent Hughes has plenty of room under the salary cap, and he needs right-handed defensemen who can help on the power play.




It makes a lot of sense, but I personally doubt Kent Hughes would do anything like this. If the Habs GM decides to do it, the Oilers would definitely have a hard time matching the offer. To be continued...
