The Edmonton Oilers made a significant move by signing Corey Perry after his departure from the Chicago Blackhawks, boosting their impressive 16-game winning streak.

Now, they are eyeing Pat Maroon, a former teammate of Perry's and a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Minnesota Wild, according to NHL insider Frank Seravalli.

Known as "Big Rig," Maroon previously played for the Oilers from 2015 to 2018 before securing championships with St. Louis and Tampa Bay.

The #LetsGoOilers have been linked to Adam Henrique, Anthony Duclair, Jake Allen, Ilya Lyubushkin, Sean Walker, Pat Maroon and Adam Boqvist.




In Tampa, Maroon and Perry formed a potent fourth line that contributed to the team's playoff success, showcasing their physical play and scoring touch.

In the current season with the Wild, Maroon has recorded 4 goals and 16 points in 49 games.

With an affordable $1 million cap hit and only one year left on his contract, Maroon could be a valuable addition to the Oilers' roster. Although he may rotate in and out of the lineup, Maroon's physicality and enforcer role would provide depth to the Oilers' fourth line.
