Oilers to pursue centerman

The Edmonton Oilers are in the market for a center to command their second line and are likely to obtain one via the free agent market.

According to multiple sources, the Oilers have expressed an interest in free agent centers Olli Jokinen, Derek Roy and Dave Bolland.

Bolland, however, is believed to be looking for at least a five-year contract worth more than $5 million per season, and that might be too pricey for the Oilers.

The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to negotiate with Bolland, but his demands may be too high for them, as well.

The Oilers have reached out to the agents for Jokinen and Roy, and could pitch offers to both once the free agency market officially opens tomorrow at noon ET.

Jokinen, 35, collected 18 goals and 25 assists for 43 points in 82 games with the Winnipeg Jets this past season.

Roy, 31, registered nine goals and 28 assists for 37 points in 75 games with the St. Louis Blues in 2013-14.
