The Edmonton Oilers made a trade with the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday in an attempt to have a long playoff run. They acquired centres Adam Henrique of Brantford, Ontario and Sam Carrick of Markham, Ontario from the Anaheim Ducks for a first round pick in 2024 and a fifth round pick in 2025 according to nhl.com.
