Cam Talbot, goaltender
The Edmonton Oilers are entertaining trade calls for goaltender Cam Talbot, TFP has learned, a situation that occurred during the regular-season, prior to the trade deadline, multiple sources said.
Talbot, 30, has one-year remaining on his contract and currently owns a no-movement clause through July 1, upon which he can list 10 teams he could accept a trade to.
According to a source close to the situation, Talbot has been asked to provide his list of 10 teams he’d be willing to sign off on a trade for.
The Oilers spoke with a few teams about Talbot’s potential availability during the season, and have engaged in discussions recently, once again.
Talbot is set to make $4.2 million this coming season, though his salary cap hit is $4.167 million.
Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli has been active on the trade front recently, talking to teams about winger Milan Lucic, centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and defenceman Oscar Klefbom, in addition to Talbot.
It’s speculated the Carolina Hurricanes have been in talks with Edmonton about Nugent-Hopkins and Talbot, with defenceman Justin Faulk and winger Jeff Skinner believed to be discussed.
Trade talks are expected to continue leading up to the NHL Draft in Dallas on June 22-23.
