Speculation is over.

According to Pierre LeBrun, forward Jesse Puljujarvi has been traded to the Carolina Hurricanes.

CAR gets: Puljujarvi, EDM gets: Patrik Puistola

Puljujarvi joins fellow Finns Sebastian Aho, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Teuvo Teravainen and Antti Raanta in Carolina

It answers many questions we had:

"Patrik Puistola is a pretty decent prospect, so that means Jesse Puljujarvi did NOT have negative value on the market!"

- Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

This puts an end to the many rumors sending Puljujarvi to Montreal, which will certainly make many fans happy.

Please note that with this trade, the Oilers free up $3 million under the NHL salary cap. This will certainly help them in their next trade (the acquisition of a defenseman).

Puistola, 22, is a 73rd overall pick in 2019. He has a combined 40 points in 56 games this season in the SM-liiga.
