The Edmonton Oilers are on the search for the last missing piece ahead of the deadline, and a new report has linked them to this Eastern Conference Captain.

Edmonton Oilers Eyeing Boone Jenner For Potential Trade At Deadline



A new report has linked Boone Jenner, captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets in a potential trade to the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers are looking to add depth to their front end, and Jenner would be an excellent veteran presence if they can make a deal work.

There is speculation linking Boone Jenner to the Edmonton Oilers

This would be a massive trade and would require Jenner to waive his modified no-trade clause. Given the state of the Columbus Blue Jackets and the future there, he may just do that considering his age and remaining years in the NHL.

Jenner Contract Is Exactly What The Oilers Need Moving Forward



Jenner's contract is actually one of the most enticing components of a potential trade for the Oilers. His AAV is just $3.75 million, which is pretty affordable for the type of leadership that the Oilers would get and the production, as Jenner has put up over 20 goals in his last 2 seasons.



It's for this reason that the Oilers may have to overpay to make a trade work. That might not be the worst thing, though, as they need that type of leadership when push comes to shove down the line.

We will see if they take the risk.
