    Oliver Ekman-Larsson Tracking Thread

    Decision time for the Coyotes on OEL. If he's traded now before the deadline, this might maximize his return, as the team trading for him has him for the next two playoff runs. What teams are interested in him and able to meet the asking price?

    Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun believes the Arizona Coyotes will have to decide if it's worth shopping defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson now in order to allow a team to get two playoff runs during his current contract.

    Garrioch lists the Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers as team's who have shown interest in Ekman-Larsson, though the ask from the Coyotes remains "extremely high." According to Garrioch, Chayka is looking for two high-end roster players and a first-round pick in return for his star defenceman.

    Through 45 games this season, Ekman-Larrson, 26, has seven goals and 20, he's on pace to top his 2016-17 totals, but once again fall short of the 20-goal mark which he topped in back-to-back seasons from 2014-2016.

    Logging an average of 24:33 per game on the last-place club has left Ekman-Larsson with a career-worst minus-40 rating, last in the NHL.

    Don't think it happens yet, but he's done in Arizona. He's spoken out. Have to think Detroit would be interested.
