Earlier this month, Oilers GM Ken Holland mentioned that he’d like to add more depth to his roster although, for the time being, he doesn’t have the cap space to do so once he re-signs RFA Ryan McLeod.  But that hasn’t stopped him from having discussions with free agents and Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal reports that one of the players they’ve spoken with is veteran winger Sam Gagner.

The 33-year-old is no stranger to Edmonton having played for them on a couple of occasions in the past.  He spent seven years with them after being drafted by them sixth overall back in 2007 before returning in 2019 for parts of two more seasons.
