Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Carson Soucy is set to become a Group VI free agent next week, and teams are apparently chomping at the bit trying to sign him. [TSN]
Off the trail...
- Corey Pronman is a psychopath and wrote an entire seven-round mock draft. Not all heroes wear capes, folks. [The Athletic]
- It’s sounding like Oliver Ekman-Larsson could be on the move. One of the teams he will not be traded to, though, is the Oilers. Poor Edmonton.
Things are believed to be intensifying in Arizona on the OEL front, however, unless something changes, the Oilers have been told they’re not on the short list of teams OEL will waive his trade protection to go to.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) October 1, 2020
