NHL insiders have now leaked a trade that will send Montreal Canadiens defenseman Joel Edmundson, along with Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin to the Edmonton Oilers.

The trade would be a true blockbuster, and would be big changes to both teams involved.

According to the Twitter Account Hockey 24/7, the deal is imminent:

A deal is close between Edmonton and Montreal. The deal would be Drouin and Edmundson to Edmonton and yes Edmundson would be playing in Edmonton. #oilers #GoHabsGo    #edmundsoninedmonton



The return would be as such:

Hearing goaltender Olivier Rodrigue, prospect Tyler Tullio and a 2023 first round pick.

Deal would be almost done, Holland would like to make the pick top 3 protected but MTL's front office are pushing to make it unprotected.

More details to come


With the Oilers in desperate need for a blueliner, they will have to pay this luxury for Edmundson.

We're sure Montreal isn't complaining!
