Today, NHL insider Chris Johnston released a new report shedding light on the trade rumors involving Edmonton Oilers star Leon Draisaitl.

Since being eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Edmonton Oilers have seen significant changes. First, General Manager Ken Holland stepped down. Then, the team traded third-line center Ryan McLeod to the Buffalo Sabres. Now, the future of Leon Draisaitl is uncertain.
New General Manager Jeff Jackson has several big tasks ahead, including securing a contract extension for superstar Leon Draisaitl. After a disappointing Stanley Cup Finals run, Draisaitl was asked about his future in Edmonton as he heads into the final year of his contract.

This has sparked a conversation about Draisaitl's future with the Edmonton Oilers. While Johnston denied a trade to the San Jose Sharks, he did not rule out the possibility of a trade altogether.
Fans and media will be on high alert in the coming weeks as this situation develops. Draisaitl is still likely to sign in Edmonton, but the longer an extension takes, the more a trade becomes a possibility.
