lewlewsports: Oliver Ekman-Larsson – Bruins and Flyers

Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now: The Boston Bruins have been concerned within the commerce talks between Oliver Ekman and Larsson final low season, and the Arizona Coyotes reportedly made him obtainable for commerce once more.

He is struggled once more this season and has one other six-year contract at $ 8.25 million. Its industrial worth is not as excessive because it was once.

In line with Bruins President Cam Neeley, the Bruins are in search of a left-handed defender and this might be a possibility for GM Don Sweeney to get OEL for a superb deal. Ekman-Larsson was eager to play for the Bruins final low season and would doubtless do it once more.

Ryan Gilbert of Philadelphia Hockey Now: The Philadelphia Flyers could also be all in favour of Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Elliotte Friedman reported earlier this 12 months that Flyers checked into Ekman-Larsson final summer time.

The Flyers had issues on the blue line final season and can attempt to enhance.

Seth Jones and Dougie Hamilton may also have an interest within the Flyers. Each are youthful and can doubtless have comparable (however doubtless bigger) contracts to OEL.

Jones and Hamilton are right-handed and may curiosity the Flyers greater than the left-handed Ekman-Larss. Nashville Predators Ryan Ellis is a right-footed shot, with Mattias Ekholm left-handed.

The Flyers have already got Ivan Provorov and Travis Sanheim on the left. Including OEL can pressure Sanheim to the precise or be used as a commodity.

It appears unlikely that Ekman-Larsson would find yourself with the Flyers, as Hamilton, Ellis, Ekholm and maybe Jones needs to be forward of OEL as their essential buying and selling locations.
