Trading winger Jesse Puljujarvi remains a strong option for the Edmonton Oilers, reports TSN's Darren Dreger, citing league sources.

It was reported in February that the Oilers were open to trading the 21-year-old, but Edmonton's since remodeled its front office with the hiring of general manager Ken Holland.

Puljujarvi is finished his entry-level contract and is a restricted free agent this summer. After an underwhelming start to his career, Puljujarvi isn't in line for a big contract, but his agent quashed rumblings of a potential KHL deal in Finland, according to Dreger.

After Puljujarvi was put on the trade block earlier this season, his agent suggested a change of scenery could benefit his client.

Puljujarvi was drafted fourth overall by the Oilers in 2016. He's split time between the big club and the AHL's Bakersfield Condors but has only produced 37 points in 139 NHL games.

He appeared in just 46 games in 2018-19 due to season-ending hip surgery.
