Reports suggest the Boston Bruins are actively pursuing Leon Draisaitl

Rumor has it that Leon Draisaitl's future with the Edmonton Oilers is uncertain, with speculation of a possible trade to the Boston Bruins swirling around.

As his contract heads into its final year in 2024-25, reports indicate the Oilers are keen on re-signing their star center. However, Edmonton Journal reporter Jim Matheson suggests otherwise, hinting that Draisaitl may be available for trade, with the Bruins showing strong interest.

Jim Matheson believes that the Boston Bruins would «move heaven and earth» to bring in Leon Draisaitl if he becomes available by any means.

According to Matheson, the Bruins are willing to go to great lengths to acquire Draisaitl if the opportunity arises. Despite Draisaitl expressing a preference to stay in Edmonton, recent conflicts with teammate Evander Kane have raised questions about his future with the Oilers.

Currently, it's improbable that Draisaitl will leave the Oilers, as both the team and the player seem committed to each other. However, potential changes in management or coaching in Edmonton could influence the situation. With the Oilers playoff performance likely impacting decisions, the team's future remains uncertain.

If they continue to struggle in the playoffs, changes across the organization could be on the horizon.
