With the NHL’s holiday roster freeze expiring tonight at midnight, there’s reason to wonder if Edmonton Oilers are on the verge of making a trade.
The Oilers have reportedly recalled goalie Eetu Laurikainen from HPK Hameenlinna in Finland. That gives them three minor-league goalies on their AHL Bakersfield squad: Laurikainen, Laurent Brossoit, and Ben Scrivens.
Buried in the minors, Scrivens does not seem to have a future with the Oilers.
Ditto for Kassian with the Habs.
