It appears we have an answer for why the Edmonton Oilers protected Zack Kassian in the expansion draft.
Report: It’s ‘rather unlikely’ Edmonton Oilers re-sign Adam Larsson, but a ‘real chance’ Tyson Barrie returns
It appears that contract negotiations between pending free agent defenceman Adam Larsson will walk to free agency, Daily Faceoff and The Nation Network’s Frank Seravalli reported.
