The Edmonton Oilers may be looking to make a move.

General manager Peter Chiarelli informed all NHL teams by email that forward Anton Slepyshev is available on the trade market, according to Sportsnet's Mark Spector.

The 23-year-old winger recently became waiver eligible and is in the final year of his entry-level contract. He carries a cap hit of $925,000.

Slepyshev was drafted 88th overall in 2013 and has recorded five goals and nine assists in 70 NHL games.

He's been limited to 18 appearances this season due to a lower-body injury and several healthy scratches.
