More NHL players are eyeing a trade with an NHL team, but the latest name to emerge is Mike Weber.
The Edmonton Oilers have been linked to Weber, who could be a suitable fit for a team like the Boston Bruins or Philadelphia Flyers, who need a veteran goalie.
Weber’s agent, Marc Bergevin, told NHL.com on Tuesday that the 22-year-old has no interest in a deal.
Weber has been with the Ducks since 2014, and he has two goals and five assists in 57 games this season.
The Ducks have a $4.5 million cap hit this season and will be under the salary cap for the second consecutive year.
The Bruins have been active in pursuing Weber, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN Radio in Edmonton.
The Bruins acquired him in the expansion draft in 2014 and he scored 18 goals and 42 assists in 82 games with the AHL’s Portland Pirates before being traded to the Ducks for a fourth-round pick and a 2018 second-round draft pick.
The Flyers have been trying to land Weber for years, and they are believed to be one of the teams that could have been interested in the 26-year old.
The 26-years-old Weber is an elite goaltender with the ability to play on the second or third lines.
He is considered to be a shutdown defenseman and he is considered a quality playmaker on the power play.
