The Edmonton Oilers have at least one goalie on their radar as they enter the offseason.

Edmonton has shown an interest in Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Petr Mrazek, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reported during Tuesday's edition of "Insider Trading."

LeBrun added that acquiring Mrazek would be more of a "Plan B" for the Oilers.

The 28-year-old goaltender has one season remaining on his contract that carries a value of $3.125 million. Oilers general manager Ken Holland drafted Mrazek in 2010 while with the Detroit Red Wings.

Mrazek appeared in 40 games during the 2019-20 regular season, putting together a 21-16-2 record with a .905 save percentage and 2.69 goals-against average.

The Oilers have goaltender Mikko Koskinen signed for two more seasons with an average annual value of $4.5 million. Mike Smith, who appeared in 39 games for the team last season, is an unrestricted free agent.
